hi there,

I am reformatting my laptop using XP professional.

I've had to replace an internal battery and the sys 32 didn't work.

So I took out the XP restore disc and decided to reformat.

I've deleted the main partition making sure the hardrive is empty.

But as the disc is reformatting about 2/3 ways through, I would get this error message:


the technical information is as followed:

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xBAA37563, 0x00000001,0xF80B239D, 0x00000000)

ntfs.sys - address F80B239D base at F8057000, DateStamp 41107eea

I'm wondering if I can simply reformat without having to correct the error message at all

Thanks in advance!
