Did you partition your drive, when you first had it?
We had our Sony Vaio Desktop crash. This computer came pre-loaded with Windoes XP. While attempting to run using the System Recovery CD, we get to a screen saying partitioning C drive. It stays on the screen forever - over 4 hours. How long should we expect that it would take? Should we leave it on overnight? Is something wrong? Any helpful hints would be much appreciated.
