I Have a rather annoying problem. I have Ubuntu 8.04 x64 and windows xp pro x64 sharing a HDD ( WD raptor 150GB) I have encountered errors on the windows partition so I decided that I would just reinstall windows....ok everytime it would crash. So I decided to wipe the entire hard drive trying to use WD software, Kill Disk, and Boot and Nuke. I then put gparted back on the Linux side and since Boot and Nuke and Kill disk just stalled while WD zero writing format said OH NO YOU CAN'T DELETE WINDOWS! I took gparted and deleted that partition. So if I am right then that means NO More windows and if I install the Windows installation disk then windows should still install no problem then correct?
Windows is not. So I realize this is a Linux forum but would any one have an idea as to why anything windows does on that HDD still crash even when its just installations?
