The best way is to get a new one.
It is very possible you have a hard drive failure as well. Boot with the windows cd(get one) and go into repair mode.
That might fix your problem w/o even reformatting.
How do I get to that part, to be able to type it in.
And it hasnt frozen, I left it all night and it got to 66%. It shouldn't be that ridiculously slow though.
EDIT: By windows disc you mean the System Recovery CD?
That's what iv'e been using the whole time to format and try and reinstall.
EDIT2: Can I just delete the partition anyway? I don't need one, and it says it has nearly 240gb spare, with 1mb being used, which isn't right.
I get an error sayin : Load needed DLL's for kernel.
I can't access the recovery console, because it goes straight to the select partition window, which there is only one.
