I thought format WAS the best that you could do to a hd, or at least that it was good enough, a clean slate and all. I have never heard of "having" to use this technique. But if that's what you think we should do---
You do know that if you do a Killdisk, you won't be able to "recover/undelete" ANY information right? Okay, just checking. So this is the plan huh?
Hmmm, this program is like the W98 bit sector scan disk. I remember this thing. I may have done the bit sector scan disk once, but I remember that it took a LONG time. But, I guess this takes even longer; either that or I have a slow computer. Guess this is an all day project. Or two.
Okay, I used the "Wipe" and "Killdisk".
So now what do I do Rick P?
This is what I've done since I've talked to you last:
--I copied the ME Startup Disk files onto the hd
--I booted the computer
--I still get the "A Disk Read Error has Occurred" error message
--I am not able to get to the DOS prompt
--I wiped my hd with the Killdisk program
Do you need to load the DOS prompt program into RAM inorder to USE it, like with a floppy, USB, or CD?
