Can't Format Storage Drive After reinstalling Windows 7 - Page 2

post #11 of 24
If you had the data drive connected when you installed W7 on the SSD it might have put the 100mb hidden system partition onto the data drive?

open command prompt -> windows key + r or start -> run

type this:
Quote:
chkdsk $: /r/v
replace the $ with your drive letter.
This will find and replace any file system errors.

You're best bet though is to download gparted and run that:
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

it's possible the MBR for the drive got screwed up. fix mbr may be in order

master boot record. But what I was thinking was the MFT (master file table) MBR is for a bootable volume
