    Which harddisk you are using Seagate, Western Digital, SamSung, Hitachi, Maxtor.
    Every harddisk manufacturer has his own harddisk partition & diagnosis utlity. I have a Seagate HDD. I use Seagate's DiskWizard Starter Edition CD for partitioning and it does partition & formatting in few seconds!! Send me a PM about the HDD you are using and I'll tell you how to go about partitioning your HDD. Don't use Partition Magic!!
