Hi, i wanted to Format my HD as it was giving me a lot of problems. I have XP Pro with SP2. I inserted the win98 Startup disk in the drive and when i had the A: prompt i typed in Format C:
I received the message Format not supported on C:
I was told that if i insert the XP pro CD into the drive I could format from the menu on there but i couldnt find anything about formatting on the menu.
I have now installed a brand new HD which is great but i have the old one which is 80Gb unusable unless i can format it.
Can anyone please advise.
Regards
