hi. it came to a point that my xp pro files are corrupted and wanted to re-install and format the hdisk. i had partitioned my 60Ghd to 30 and 30 but when i inserted the setup disc at startup it only shows 1 partition, 57G+. why does it not show the other partition? the 2nd partioned part is all my data files and i have nowhere to copy it, 25G files all in all. I used to reinstall and format the 1st partition with no problem because it saw the 2 partitions but now, no more. hope you can help me. thanks a lot.
