New SSD, Unable to Format


Tilen

Recommended Posts

Installed a new solid state drive as a secondary drive into my pc (Force GT 60GB), BIOS recognized it and I can see it in Disk Management, but when I tell it to do a format (NTFS, Quick Format) it gives an error that "The format did not complete successfully."

After trying a few more times, decided to boot from Win 7 DVD and attempt to format from there, still refuses to format. Not sure what else I can try.

Thank you for any assistance/ideas.

I would try and run Parted Magic and secure erase the drive and when you run the Secure erase it will tell you the drive is locked by your BIOS this is normal, just exit back to the parted Magic Desktop and unplug the drive and then plug it back in and run Secure erase it but do not shut down.
