Ok I was o/cing my P4 and everything was fine. I decide I need to redo some drivers and stuff so I return everything back normal setting. Booted into XP and all my settings were gone and when to default, but it was working find. I rebooted then I got the blue screen. So I try to get into safe mode but it didn't let me. So I figure the os got corrupted, so i try to do a fresh install. After I got it to format, I rebooted to get XP to install. During the install I get error like "file is not in XP image". So I reformated the HD and try the install again then it said the drive cannot be formated because of bad partition. So I reformat it again and now it said the disk is bad. What is going on here, is my HD dead or do I have to do something to it? Its a WD 30gig 7200rpm, its only about a year old. Please help!!!
