Getting rid of NT partition when re-installin Win95?
Posted on 1997-10-13
I have a Micron P200 that I previously had set up to load either Win95 or Win NT Workstation 4.0. I now want to use this computer only for Win 95. It has a 4 gig SCSI hard drive. 2 gigs where set up as drive C, and 2 as drive D. Win95 was on drive C, and Win NT on drive D. When I wanted to start over installing just Win 95, I formatted the hard drive (from DOS prompt). Drive C formatted fine, but drive D only yielded about 50 Megs of storage after formatting. When I then went ahead to install Win 95, a screen appeared saying that Drive D contains an NT partition which will not be available (or words to that effect).
How can I "recover" the nearly 2 gigs of hard drive storage from Drive D? Preferably, I would like to do this without having to wipe everything out and reinstall win 95 again. But, if that is the only way, I will do that.
Thanks in advance,
