You make size before formating, follow the tutorial.

I was following the instructions. I just followed the first snip and then as I continued to scroll to #2 it then tells you to "create a specific size". Oh well, I can just continue with the installation anyways, right?

Just an update:

I completed everything and eventually reinstalled windows. I used a HD scanner from the manufacturer's website and performed a long scan and it passed. However,

this morning, I got an error stating my computer couldn't come out of hibernation with an error code (don't know off the top of my head). I ended up rebooting and everything seemed fine.

Is this independent to my HD issues or is it a common problem? And is there another HD scanner I can use to double check if my HD is ok?
