Partitioning

I have gone out and purchased Patition Magic 7.0. I would like to know if anyone has been successful in installing Win 98 after installing XP. Do I have to dump my HDD and install 98 and then XP like the book says?:confused:

Thank you

if you are trying to just do a fresh install with XP, there is no reason to first install 98. Just reboot from the XP cd and format the HD and install XP

i know with pmagic you can hide the partition...then install win98 ...unhide the xp part... and do a bootcfg/fix to fix the ntloader never tried it though like to keep things simple install 98 then xp will work everytime...or just ghost the winxp partition format reinstall and put the image back.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
