FAT16 on one and FAT32 on another?
Posted on 2000-02-27
I have a ASUS P2B m/b, Pent2 350, 192 mb ram, Viper Ultra, 2 - 8.4 gig Western Digital harddrives. One is primary master the other is secondary master. I partitioned primary into 8 1-gig partitions and sec into 7 partitions. When I format the drives the drives on the primary disk format FAT16, when I format the secondary disk it formats FAT32. I use the same Win98 star-up disk to format both. Why is this happening? I created a 1gig pri dos partition and set active, the rest extended with logical drives assigned and on second drive extended with logical drives assigned.
