My computer crashes (power off - no BSOD) when I'm trying to format a new external 3TB drive with GPT boot table via eSATA. A look in the event viewer shows that there were dozens of error event ID 55's ("The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume E:.") prior to the crash.
The disk is new, and hasn't been formatted yet. I very much doubt it has anything to do with the external disk. I will try via USB at some point, though I'm loathe to risk another crash.
Has anyone else come across this problem?
