Windows problem after reformatting


Well M8:) you cand delete an OS just like that
Now you have to start over again, and format both c and e, then you install windows on C again.
When you done with the installation you still wont be able to see E
So you need to make E visable!
Rightclick on MY COMPUTER, in the end you will see HANDLE, select that one, now you will see a line called DISC HANDLE, select hat one, now you can see both of the partition. Click on your E partion, select to format it and when the format is doen geve it a name, like E again.
Now the disc is visable under MY COMPUTER

Good luck to you M8:)

RAW file system


RAW file system is typical of an unformatted hard drive and is the default state for most new retail drives because the manufacturers won't know which operating system their customers are going to put on the drive or use it in conjunction with.

Most operating system installations come with utilities to partion and and format new drives see fdisk from MSDOS (specifically versions 5 and higher) And MS Windows 3.1 through 95,98 and ME which all used the FAT32 file system as default and would partition and format during installation. Windows NT similarly would partition and format the drive during install to the NTFS system, as do all versions of Windows XP.

if you are not installing a new OS but setting the drive as a slave to a currently installed drive then you can use a program like Partition Magic or similar to detect the installed drive and partition / format it tou your requirements

if you have windows 98 boot disk put that in, the firt thing you do is to go to f-disk and change the partions in it, then format c: drive. take out disk in A drive put in New windows XP CD and restart. the disk will run and install itself. and thats it. right now your partions are set to read only windows 95, 98, there are 2 options to choose from I belive the one you need is 32.
