O.K. here's an amusing little problem:
I have an older (2-4 yrs 540mb) HDD that has been labled "Ao". I am unable to delete the active partition because FDISK requires that the HDD lable be entered to confirm the partition delete and nothing I have found will allow me to enter a "o" ( as opposed to "O" or "0"). I have tried using ascii characters with no luck. DOS 6.22 "LABLE" command won't work. As of yet, I have not tried anything in Windows, but I suspect that that environment won't work, either.
I know there are ways (usually in DOS) to name items that make them difficult to open in DOS and nearly impossible in Windows, but nothing I am familiar with works here.
This HDD works fine... the only thing I can't do is delete the partition.
Got any ideas how this was done? or how to change it?
Thin que !
