Hard disk partition not recognized by Win 2000 setup
Posted on 2000-03-05
I am attempting to add Win 2000 to my computer that is currently running Win 98 2nd edition. What I would like to do is have a dual boot system and keep Win 2000 on it's own hard drive and completely separate from Win 98.
I specifically purchased a new ATA/66 13 GB hard disk and installed it for Win 2k. I formatted it as a FAT 32 drive. In additon to this drive, I also have a 8 GB (Master Boot) and 1.2 GB SCSI drive and an Orb 2.2 GB IDE removable drive.
I installed Win 2k with the dual boot option, but when it advanced to the select partition to install selection, my new 13 GB hard drive is not shown. Both the SCSI drives and the Orb IDE or shown as options to install to, but not the new 13 GB ATA/66.
Can anyone explain what is happening here and what I need to do in order for my new drive to be recognized?
Thanks in advance.
