Talking How To Format A Partition Into Ext2 ? Help

I used mkfs.ext2 format a partition into ext2 filesystem .
my linux was installed on an embeded board ,
through terminal I type the command :
mkfs.ext2 -b 1024 -m 5 -g 8192 /dev/sda9
the process will stop at middle size of the /dev/sda9.

anyone can tell me how to do ?

Could be your options settings are incorrect for the drive. Just try:
mke2fs /dev/sda9

BTW what is the embedded board are you using?
