try to check if it's in working order using seatools
if it passes, try formatting using diskpart (and becareful)
first select disk 1 (or whatever number, see list disk)
followed by create partition primary
and select partition 1
followed by format fs=ntfs
if that fails too, you might have a bad disk or os
If you have a bootable windows disc, any windows disc, try formatting through that.
First, boot from cd/dvd.
When the installation shows you the partitions, click on the drive/partition you wanted to format, and hit 'Format'.
It'll do the trick..!
