Formating hard disk

IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.

Expand Partition of Hard Drive

My advice is start fresh with a new hard drive, install XP on it, then use partitioning software while running XP to create an NTFS partition on the remaining space of your old hard drive if you must keep your FAT32 partition.

An alternate method would be go to the manufacturer of your hard drive and download their partitioning software. Often it will run from a floppy or boot cd and you can partition as you like using it. Keep in mind, repartitioning a drive, especially an older one, has a bad habit of making the old existing data unreadable if you're not experienced so make sure you have a back up.

Windows does not boot

This sounds like a reformating job required here. You need your Windows CDROM and it is important that it is your own and not regitered to your friend outwise you aere going to have the same problem later when you are asked to validate Windows.

Boot your PC, Open the DVD/CD player draw and put the Windows disk in, switch off your PC. Reboot your PC and press Del to go into setup, in setup press the down arrow once and press enter, on this page halfway down or there about you will see First Boot -------Second Boot---Its the first boot one you want , set it to CDROM by pressing + touch nothing else, now press F10 then press enter. Your PC should now be Booting to CD.
It will run on to a point where you have to choose a partion to format Choose C or 1.
After that it wont need you attention for quite a while, it will automatically start installing Windows files upto the point where it needs the Product Key, after that you will need to configure the keyboard settings then the rest the PC does. Good luck.

HELP--- problem with the hd booting and pulling my hair out !!!!!!1

Sounds like you have a boot up password enabled and the only way to disable something like that is to remove the cmos battery from the computer. You could download the service manual from the ibm support website which would tell you how to remove that. After you remove it, wait 15 seconds and replace it. If you're still in warranty i would call up ibm and ask them if they have a software method or a master code to reset that.

You need to use your Windows 2000 install cd to go into the recovery console, in other words boot from the cd and when it get to where it asks if you want to install windows or repair it using the recovery console, then press R - DO NOT DO A WINDOWS REPAIR INSTALLATION - just pay attention, it will be the first screen to come up when the cd finishes booting. Log into the windows install that it shows you, when you get to the command prompt type in checkdsk /r and it will repair your drive. hope this solves your problem.
