Is this a separate issue to the problem you posted at click here or the same one?

Blue screens are a function of Windows ergo, you must have Windows open for this to appear. You cannot format a disk which is itself being used by Windows.

You format either from a bootup floppy or, with W2K or XP, from the O/S disk. Either way it is done before Windows loads.
