Hi everyone, after a recent post on this subject i found myself full of confidence in creating a dual boot system on my laptop. I had problems to say the least. I would like to partition my hdd into 2 drives, c and d. I would then like to install 98se onto the c drive (2gb after partitioning) and xp onto the remaining space in d drive (27gb). 98se is a full copy. The xp pro disc is an upgrade i originally bought for my desktop. Is there anyone out there that can give me step by step, baby talk description of just how i go about this starting with formatting, fdisking (partioning)and installing. Previous attempts got me so close but no cigar. Thanks to all who respond for your time
deleted all partitons and i'm installing 98 which is currently formatting the drive.
Madboy-youre wrong ;)
I got to install 98 on c drive, i had to install 98 on d drive and then attempt to upgrade with xp cd. finished installing and couldnt get 98 to then boot. no little screen at boot as which os i want to load up.,
forgot to mention that the partition sizes and stuff were reported crrectly c: 2gb d: 27gb so i must of done the fdisk thing right, right ??? I think im going wrong with the xp installation. either that or my upgrade cd is no good and i need a full copy.
