I just installed Vista on my new build. Apparently, there is no option to do a "full format" when installing Vista. There is only "format" which took mere seconds on my brand new never used 150 GB drive. That didn't leave me with that "warm fuzzy" feeling. Does anyone know why this is? How would Vista know if there were any bad sectors on my new drive without doing a full format???

BTW, I'm using Vista Ultimate Retail (full). I've noticed the behavior is the same for both 32 and 64 bit.
