reformatting problems

  Tessa348 13:00 16 Feb 2007

I attempted to reformat a hardrive having backed up all the drivers for the motherboard etc. I used fdisk as I wanted partitions (something I have done many times with other pcs in the past).
Having created partitions, on reboot volume labels had been allocated to D & E drives although I had not yet reformatted. E's label was *remote* in lowercase and I was not able to reformat as this was classed as 'invalid'. I am at a loss at to what to do next with this as I cannot seem to get over this incorrect volume label. Has anyone get any ideas?

I can't quite follow this.

What's on the C drive?

Are D and E on a separate HDD?

You've posted in the Vista section of the forum, so are you trying to install Vista either on its own or as a dual-boot system?
