Hi I'm trying to set up an old Pentium 3 toshiba tecra laptop to dual boot windows 98se and 2k from scratch. I've partitioned the HD via usb on another computer with the disk management utility so that 30 gb is fat32 and 8gb is a blank partition.
When I put it back in the laptop and boot from the 98se setup cd, it recognises the 30gb partition and prompts me to reformat to fat 32 ( although it already is). When it reboots it starts up then says 'cannot read drive c'. I've tried different partition configs so that it is unformatted, unallocated letter and is free space but to no avail. Do both partitions have to be formatted to fat 32 before installation? Any suggestions gratefully recieved. Thanks
Thanks, that seems to have worked. It has formatted the 2gb C drive to fat16, then I have the majority as a fat32 D drive and the other 8 gb as ntfs E drive running win 2k. I can't workout how to combine the C and D partitions though. I'll try converting C to fat 32.
