I've dropped a B*****k!

  Rufus Tanner 17:59 20 Feb 2003

After putting my new PC together I got around to loading windows on. It wouldn't accept my ME disc, so I loaded on 98 first which it gratefully accepted. ME had no trouble loading on after that so you would think me a happy man. No. My 80Gb hard drive is now 2Gb according to windows. I think when I was setting up 98 I had two options for HDD format and guess which one i chose. The problem I have is I need to wipe (delete, Format, Fry)the HDD to enable me to reload windows back on, but alas I am clueless to this operation. Any tips would be most appreciated.
Many Thanks.

Run fdisk, delete the existing partition(s), create a new partition, ensure you enable large disk support - see click here

Use Partition Magic and you will be able to utilise full capacity without the hassle of FDISK,Format and reloading windows.
