I have decided to delete my other partition which is (E:\)


I have windows installed on (C:\).... How can i get it to format??


I cant do it through FDISK cos it says something about logical drives existing but not being defined?

Is there any way to define a logical drive?

I cant boot from the XP cd cos it only gets so far and gives me a hardware error... Which is my zip drive that i havnt got installed anymore but the drivers are still on the partition i want to delete...



Help?

I must agree.I dual boot 98/XP. I use PM just like a Disk Management Console in 98.

Works GREAT!

Are you wanting to format or actually delete the partition?

If wanting to format: start -> run -> cmd -> type "format e:" (no quotes)

If installing XP, it should ask in the very begining of the install if you want to format (along with partitioning the HD) the partition that you are installing XP onto and what type of file system to use (FAT32 or NTFS)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
