I got a new Removable Harddrive that I installed in my machine with XP. I tried using Fdisk but I got an error.
How do I Partition the Disk. The disk is 20 GIG in size. Will XP see the whole 20 GIG as 1 Partition?:confused:
Thanks,Randy

Hi, Randy!

In BIOS, set the CD-ROM as first boot option.

Insert the Win XP CD and bootup. You'll then get the option to delete partition, create partition, format and install.

I had no luck Partitioning the Drive in XP. So I put the Drive in a Win 95 machine and Ran Fdisk. Problem, The drive is 20 GiG and the Bios say's it's 20 GiG but Fdisk say's its only 8 Gig.
What's the Deal???
