    Default Formatting a hard drive

    I am trying to format my hard drive, but I keep on getting the following message: "Format cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.

    How do you dismount this volume so I can format my hard drive? :roll:

    Sounds like you're trying to format the hard drive volume that has Windows installed on it. Can't do that. Have to format it either by using a bootdisk or with the Windows XP CD that came with the computer.
