Typically, a very fine iron oxide coating is put on the surface of disks, but it can be just about any medium that will maintain a magnetic field.

No, you are not. Just make sure that you format the right drive. I would recommend to disconnect the second drive while you are performing installation. When you finish connect the second drive back.


What is a magnetic hard drive?

Let's make it simple! Think of a CD or DVD; they are optical recorded disks. If instead of a plastic coating like the DC or DVD the disk was coated with a VERY thin layer of magnetic material, now you would have a magnetic disk that you could read or write on just like a cassette recorder or a 8-Track recorder. Now, instead of just 1 magnetic disk you stacked 2 or more magnetic disks vertically and if you place a electric coil between each set of disks to read or write to the disk surfaces; then you would have a magnetic hard drive or what is more commonly referred to as: A HARD DRIVE.

Can zip disks be used instead of hard disks?

Windows does not support booting from a Zip drive, but most Linux distributions do. While one could theoretically use one as a hard drive (for Linux), the low capacity (750 MB max) and relatively slow speed make it a rather unattractive option. Zip disks also have many known reliability problems, so it should not be trusted to store data for a long period of time.

What does it mean when you try to format your hard drive but every time you try you get a 'Unable to Lock Harddrive' message?

It means that you are currently using a file or files on the hard drive you are trying to format. If you are trying to format your primary drive you will need to boot to a boot disk - not the C: drive. For most versions of windows you will will need to make the boot disk(s) (an option under My Computer) and boot to those disks rather than your hard drive.
