Partition not 100% on laptop 700 presario

From the description loo\ks like it's not a partition problem, but the Compaq CD.
Try to partition Hard Drive using Windows 98 bootable CD.
Try to install Win XP from different CD - doesn't have to be Compaq. Later you can download drivers.

Transfer of old laptop's condent to external harddrive

Windows 98 don't have pre-installed drivers for mass storage, like external hdd, pen drive, flush memory etc.

So, you should install the driver for your external hdd then win 98 will recognize it. And you can use it. For you external drive driver you can surf your external manifacturer site.

If any problem Ask me.

Connect laptop to cpu and use laptop as monitor

go to "tiger direct" and purchase a usb to usb interconnect cord. the software they supply will install an ansi and unicode driver so you can use two machines with win xp, win me or win 98. xp and me use the unicode driver while win 98 uses the ansi driver.
