Partition/Re-Format Problem

Hey:

Got a new computer (P-4, Intel) and tried to re-format and partition the way I like. The problem is, when I do the fdisk thing there seems to be one partition I am unable to delete (seems to be about 8000 mb). Keep getting messages about deleting logical drive first (but there is none) and then try to delete primary and it says I can't without deleting the other??? Am I too vague here?

Was going to try deletepar instead of fdisk to see if that works but not sure if this is a partition that must remain for some reason or another.

It does work, however, when I simply using the XP cd to format and partition. I just want to know (a) what is that partition and (b) how do I dlete it under fdisk?

Thanks,
Kesk

You should delete the extended or logical drive, it may have the XP installation files there only. From the original install, maybe?

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
