I've made and used ME & 98 boot floppies before but the XP one does'nt respond to ie: format x: , fdisk and the like.Are there different commands for XP or is the disc for another perpose? If I was to install a new secondary HHD(non operating system) with a NTFS partition on my machine : 1. would I use the XP floppy ? 2. Could I use an ME boot disc to create an NTFS partition even though ME won't run on NTFS? 3. Would disc manager within XP recognise an unformatted new HHD so I could do it all from there?
