      If Western Digital's DOS based 'low-level' format is repeating itself it
      has done its job and is waiting for an OS to partition and format the HD
      disk and install. Is the HD larger than that normally recognized by DOS ?
      (Around one or two Gigabytes - can't remember - this could be a problem).

      Does Windows 'see' the hard disk ? Or tell you there's nowhere to
      install?

      Have you tried installing Linux, some of their distributions are quite
      clever at finding HD's if that works, Windows is normally only too happy
      to overwrite a Linux partition.

      We're not at the hammer stage yet !
