can i do quick format?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
ok ive set up my hard drives in an raid array and i did the slow format on the hd
and installed windows xp successfully.

my mobo is dfi lanparty ut 250gb
but i tried to install the new nvidia chipset drivers but it didnt work it keeps on restarting. when it gets to ethernet.

ive decided to re install windows to see if the problem is solved but it stills restarts at the same point.

i was just wondering whether i can format these hard drives using quick format instead of fulll format in the windows installation.
or it is a bad idea since it is raid 0

thanks

The quick format doesn't check for errors... If you've already ran a normal format and it didn't throw a red flag you should be safe to do a quick one. I'd check the drivers though, that's likely to be the culprit. Try booting into safe mode and if that's fine then try safe mode with networking to see if that works.
