How to reformat HDD with Safe Guard Easy

2008-07-17, 12:41 PM

Hello Community:


Could anyone please tell me how reformat an HDD with Safeguard Easy 4.30.1 on it? I only want to erase what is on the drive and begin anew. Using Windows XP only gets me a request for the floppy with the kernel, which I don't have. I don't even have a floppy device for the laptop. Using a third party boot up partion manager only yields me a hanging cursor prompt with no reponse. Would anyone know a way to defeat the secuirty so that I can put down a new disk format and operating system? Will putting the Hitachi Travel Star disk in an eternal SATA enclosure to a desktop pc enable me to format it? Thanks in advance.
