Can someone help me. I need to format my hardrive so that I can partion it correctly. I don't want to use partition magic or other 3rd party software. I want to reformat and then create the partition myself. I'm good with win 98. I have done reformatting severla times. Now that I installed win XP Pro and as NTFS, I'm puzzled. Can someone help. Do I need to create a boot disk for win xp pro. My pc has options to boot from cd. Thanks for any help.
