I just got my new hard drive (500GB) and I was about to install Windows 7, but received an error while formatting the partition (
0x80070057—damaged disk). The disk is new and I've never used it before. I am using a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop and I can easily install and remove the hard drive; however, I tried to install Windows XP SP3 but it didn't recognize the hard drive at all. Any advice?
