Are you saying that you formatted your hard drive? When you format your hard drive everything on it is deleted, including windows.

Hi bsouthward and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Lets me see if I have this correct, your computer was running fine and then you had the message "hard drive not formatted, would you like to now?" and now you computer will not boot?

Would you please provide us with the make and model of your computer and what operating system you are using.

Is this your internal hdd?
