Well your order seems correct. To use one drive with 2 or more partitions you'll need each partition to have at least 2 to 3GB for windows to move around. It would be easier for you to have the Mfg's bootable utilities disks to set up your partitions. Windows 98 must be installed first. I'm guessing it is currently set up on the partition D:\. & it runs. ( Good choice, either here or on a seperate drive). Put your Windows XP cd into your cdrom drive. At boot up pressing the F8 key & bringing up your boot menue. Pick the cdrom that has your XP cd in it. Windows will show you just what partitions are on your drive & it will see windows 98 too. This is where you must be mindfull of your choices. Choose the first partition on the drive for win XP. If you want to use the NTFS allow XP to do a quick format. Continue with the install of XP. When windows XP does a restart "let it time out on it's own to restart", & you will see the words "Press any key to boot to CD. Do not touch any key. Just allow windows to continue by it's self. Leave the CD in the drive. There will come a time where windows XP will change the boot.in file & display which OS do you want to boot to. Pick Windows XP & keep selecting Xp till it is finished installing it's self.
If this fails, you will have to recheck that windows 98 can still boot on it's own but think this will work. If by some Godly reason it hangs wait a few minutes. Post back what you noticed & your thoughs. So I can find a reason this has happened. It should work. Good luck!

    My bad. I miss understood your explanation where you formatted two partitions out of the four. Now you want to install XP & it hangs. Allow WinXP to do a full format before it gets to installing. There could be a problem with the FAT. I do not know what format you want to use. You didn't mention it. A NTFS or Fat32.

    You did mention that you are using bootable disks. That alone could be the probem. With XP & a fresh install you have no need to use any media other than the XP CD. On the other hand if you want a Fat32 I suggest you use the drive's Mfg's disk utilities to set the drive up, including the FAT. This will make all the difference to the hard drive & your instal of the operating system.

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!

Win XP over win 2007


hia,

you can do by fresh installation; which will format your hard drive and existing windows 2007. and another way; make partition or if you already have then install win XP on seprate partition other than win 2007. if you dont have partition; you can make it by partitioning tools or software like partition magic etc.

now you will need win xp bootable CD/USB; and you need to start your computer with option Boot with CD and if you suing USB then boot with USB.

and just follow step by step instructions in setup and as i said if you want to isntall on seprate partition then select that partition when it ask to choose partition you want to install.

let me know if you need more details or anything else.

Thanks.

I have Intel 810e PIII 1 GHz 512 Mb Ram 20 GB HDD. OS Win ME I want to add secondary HDD. Which one should I preferr 80GB / 120GB / 160GB. and will install new OS say Win XP or linux in Secondary Hdd....


160gb - but ensure the bios is up to date and check the motherboard manual as that will or should explain about maximum capacity of hard drives but am sure it should be fine.

If it is not and does not detect all of it you can partition the partitions into smaller amounts ie 80 gb partitions each ?

Gigabyte motherboard cd


You do not not need your motherboard CD to preform a format on your drive. Any windows CD. Win XP home, XP Pro, Win 2000 will format your hard drive. You can also use the hard drive's Mfg's utility disks & creat a bootable floppy disk or creat a bootable CDROM disk that will not only allow you to format the hard drive but also fun testing on the drive. You can even pick your cluster size & FAT file. Write down the name of your drive & model no#. Go to the Mfg's web site & download the utility software. Chances are Windows will have most of your boards drivers in it's data base. All you'll need to do is download from Gigabyte your missing drivers. You'll need you complete model no# & version no# if you can find it.

Large hard drive


Yes it will. Mostly it is the operating system that will allow the drive to be see at its full size. Suggest you use Win XP home with at least SP1 but Win XP Pro with SP2 is faster & very stable. Also suggest you set the drive up with the Mfg's disk utilites. Bootable floppy or bootable CD. If using plain XP home you can still install the OS & than download a free trial of Partition magic which will allow you to combine any smaller partitions to get you up to you 250GB size. (only if you have a problem though.

Continuous restarting with winxp


On computers that contain Windows 98 and Windows XP: ? Windows 98 must be installed on a basic disk on a partition formatted with FAT or FAT32. If Windows 98 or Windows Me is not installed on the system partition, which is almost always the first partition on the disk, the system partition must also be formatted with FAT or FAT32. ? Compressed DriveSpace or DoubleSpace volumes won't be available while you are running Windows XP. It is not necessary to uncompress DriveSpace or DoubleSpace volumes that you will access only with Windows 98. ? Windows XP must be installed last. Otherwise important files needed for starting Windows XP could be overwritten
