Hard Drive Partition

  t_o_m 19:10 21 Jul 03

I am formatting my hard drive tomorrow and reinstalling windows me following some severe problems with it. The problem is, I can't remember what you have to type to bring up the partition menu and what you have to do to get a FAT32 partition. Any help would be much appreciated.

How many partitions have you got on your HD now?

i am on fat32 at the moment with 1 partition i think but I just want to make sure that once I have formatted my HD that the partition is still fat32

No problem.can you set your bios to boot from the ME cd?.

Better would be to start from a floppy with Format on it and type format c:

Have you got a bootable floppy?

Don't fret, once you've done it your laffing

Good Luck
