Okay well I pressed ESC twice pretty fast, and it said something about restarting (When I pressed escape to go to delete option 2, it went to those 2 different screens saying something about restarting first, then it brought me back to the prompt). Then I just typed fdisk back in the prompt and it brought me back to the options screen there.

Look at these three attachments closely. They go in order, but not necessarily.

I'm really confused, but I think this isn't as complicated as it seems.

I'm assuming you meant Option 3 of the original Option 3.

I posted screenshots of the 2 option screens, and what happens when you press Option 3 on the second option screen, and also what you see when it says set partition [see attachment shot 2 then -> 4].

That's low... :whistling: It's an extended NTFS partition. We need to switch tools to get rid of that. Download DiscWizard Starter Edition and create a boot floppy using that file just as you created the Win98 floppy.

This one will take a while, but it will write the drive to 0's and get rid of that partition in the process.

Okay, I believe I have made the disk under the option in Maintenance DiscWizard Starter Edition Diskette. It said that eventually this would be disk 1 of 2? I know you're answering my PM so take your time :whistling:

Yes...it will make two floppies. You should have been able to start the application by double clicking the downloaded file.

Once they're made, boot to number 1 and post a screenshot of the first screen.
