In the old days, I had a floppy with CHCKDSK and other tools for checking hard disk failures, repairing them and, if necessary, reformating them. I recently tried to reinstall XP on an old computer, but got errors related to the hard disk. The XP installation CD can't handle it, so I need something more powerful.

Anybody can advise on a set of live tools on a bootable CD-ROM for advanced disk management (checking, repairing, reformating in NTFS, partitioning,...) Especially the NTFS is bugging me.

I've checked this question, but the answer isn't what I'm looking for.
