So you want to format a hard drive, but your Windows loads forever? Don't worry. You can format hard drive from BIOS to solve this problem. I turned to an easy-to-use tool, EaseUS Partition Master, when I once met the same problem because I wanted to solve this problem as quickly as I could. It turned out that this tool is trustworthy.
