Awesome... now about partitioning this drive :tazz:

there isn't a C:/WINNT :-/

View Post

Then C:\ isn't your windows 2000 partition. What is listed in the C:\ drive that starts with 'Win'? Post teh same information for the D:\ drive.

Fenor

*Edit* I thought we already figured out that D:\ was your windows 2000 folder, so there should be a WINNT folder in that drive.

Do you have a windows 98 boot disk handy? what we can do is go and format the drive using that disk and then boot back into windows 2000 and format the drive.

There is a WINNT folder in D:. C: only has a WINDOWS folder. And I'm completely certain that C: is the '98 partition because it has all the '98 files.

Yeah, that's exactly what he wants to do, he wants to uninstall 98, which in this case means formatting the drive, which he can't do inside windows 2000 because the option is greyed out for him

Oh and C: is where 98 is installed and D: is where 2000 is installed if that helps clear things up a little.

That's okay, follow this link and it will talk you through creating a windows 98 boot disk. Of course you will need to be logged into 98 to do this.
