Hi ..I would like to clear my hdd of all files and progs.. I had installed bootmagic on one of my drives so that I could dual boot between 98 & xp. for various reasons things went pear shaped and I would now like a clean sheet to start again ... The problem lies with the removal of boot magic... having used the uninstaller with the prog to remove it....then started the computer with the win98 startup disc.... I then ran fdisk to first remove all partitions...then set one new primary active partition......I then rebooted into the startup disc to format the new partition useing the format C:/s command.... I then reinstalled win98.. and when I booted the computer for the first time it tried to load bootmagic but could not find the bootmagic files....QUESTION.. why is it looking for the bootmagic files when the drive has been dealtwith as described above... how do you get rid of bootmagic if all the above have failed... as long as this drive is connected to the machine it assumes command, even if it is jumpered as slave..Is the only answer to dump the drive.. Your thoughts/advice PLEASE!!!
