UPDATE: So i got some help from some buddies and it's all good now... thanks for the help anyways.

I was missing my RAID drive for my motherboard... (bare with me, i can't remember the details anymore...) So you need to find the raid controller hd for your motherboard, put it on a floppy, and install it manually when reformating... before it beings the reformat you need to F5 or w/e it is to say "yes, i am going to install a 3rd party raid thingy..." lol. Hopefully this gets you somewhere... cheers

Solution with out jiberish:

When reformatting, you are missing your RAID controller drivers. To find them, search for your motherboard (on google to get the main website) and download the RAID controller drivers for that motherboard onto a floppy disc. You will need to use this floppy disc while reformatting. When reformatting, the option to install 3rd party drivers comes up near the begging of the formatting process, so when you see the message pop up at the bottom, hit F5 or whatever the key is. After that, you should be home free. Google what i said a bit more, and you should be able to put the missing pieces together, especially the bit about putting the RAID controller drivers onto a floppy.

Hopefully this helps you somehow... Best of luck to you. Cheers.

The Problem:
I'm all set to reformat, I've backed up what I needed and crap.. but I can't reformat! Please watch the video and help me if you can and give me and suggestions as to what to do. Thank you.

The error: "Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it's properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer."

I should probably also mention that my D Drive (cd/dvd drive) has possibly died? My computer doesn't pick up on cd's that i put in anymore, so i'm suspecting it might have died... but when i do this reformat i hear the disc spinning and shit... It's probably part of the problem eh? lol, but aside from that; yes i have done all of that, and it's still not working... Your help would be much appreciated... Thank you.
