Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
I have a IMB Netvista KZA-6059 PC (Pentium 3, 256 RAM, 30G harddisk). I was trying to install windows XP Pro and during the installation process it recognise only 2G as my harddisk capacity where as my harddisk is actually 30G. I have also upgraded the BIOS to latest version. Windows 98 installation works fine. I used a windows Me startup disk and re-formatted the whole hard disk with FAT32 file system. When I try to install winodws XP, it only recognises 2G as the hard disk capacity.
Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
