|This is a weird one. I was resurrecting an old laptop hard drive in Disk Management on WinXP. I deleted the partitions, and created two new ones. As I tried to create the third partition, Disk Management just stopped, and after a while I got a error saying it had timed out. I shut down Disk Management and then restarted it again. Now it wouldn't show any of the drives, it just said "Connecting to logical disk manager" at the bottom for ages, It never connected.|
I restarted the machine, opened Disk Management again, and saw the drives were displayed. I created my partition and tried to give one of the others a new label. Again after about two minutes it just stopped, and cannot be restarted.
Any ideas what might cause this?
