Yes, let's do that. The format file on that disk is a little less glitchy than the format.com on the ME disk.

Have you done a reboot with that disk in the machine...it contains different drivers and diagnostics, so we need to get them into the ram.

Once you've done that and are at the A:\ prompt, type format C: /s ENTER

Let me know if it begins the formatting process.
