i think when i tried to install windows 8 and selected the disk partition that was available, i formatted the drive. it gave me an error but i guess it still formatted. idk honestly but i dont care about the stuff i had, i just want to be able to use my laptop.

Code:
diskpart
select disk 0
detail disk (are you 100% sure this is the correct internal disk??!!)
clean
create partition primary size=500 (this will create a 500MB primary partition. Remove the size=500 part to use the whole drive)
exit
Which part of command above fail?

You didn't create a partition after "clean"! (create partition primary)

So now do:
Code:
diskpart
select disk 0
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick
Disk has already been "cleaned". It looks like you want to use 1 partition which will use all the space on the physical drive.
