You might want to try running a hdd utility like mhdd on your computer. Your hdd might be at the end of its life. sounds a little unusual for it to crash when formating.

IIRC, I've cured "unmountable boot volume" in the past with just the last two of the 8, and without the "/F" switch. But following the entire solution as offered won't do any harm.
