Cannot delete a hard drive partition
Posted on 2000-01-08
I want to delete a primary partition. I have 3 primaries and 1 extended. The first primary has NT 4.0, the second Win98, third has an unbootable Linux which I want to delete. The extended is used for apps and data. I have System Commander Deluxe and Partition Magic 4. SysComm and PM4 could not view the partitions at all. Thus, could not delete the unwanted partition that way. I used good ol' fdisk, but it sees the Linux partition as an "extended" instead of primary. Using the "Delete extended partition" option would only delete the real extended partition with apps and data - which I don't want to do. So...how can I delete the 3rd primary partition? Please help.
