    got this mail earlier,



    Can't figure out why he's stuck. I know it's not a BIOS issue, Win98 sees the whole HD, why can't XP?

    Could it be a cluster size the in FAT32?


    Thanks,

    Heeter

    Check to see how Disk Management views it, perhaps post a screenshot?

    Just out of curiosity is the version of Partition Magic he's using compatible with windows xp? I know earlier versions aren't.

    WIndows is NOT installed, This is the CD bootup he is trying to install XP.
