    There is and it's OK but sometimes it just doesn't work properly as with a lot of the snazzier Ubuntu features. Best to stick with the tried and true.

    I wouldn't format. I'd make a new partition and try installing windows on there.

    who's going to make the violins?

    But if he doesn't want to keep anything there's no point in not formatting it. I'm guessing he doesn't want anything considering he tried to format it himself

    Why don't you just ring your IT people and have them fix it?

    Ok, just tried it.

    Same thing happens, when it says something like 'windows is starting' it then comes up with a blue screen that says:

    'A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.'
