Windows System Reinstall & Partition
Posted on 2000-05-07
I'm ready to do a clean install of my system (Compaq Presario 2120) using the provided QuickRestore CD. This CD has propietary SOUND & MODEM drivers, so that's my only option.
A few months ago, I aquired PartionMagic (PM) 4.0, and since I'm doing a new install, I thought this may be the time to put PM to use. My PC has a 2.1GB hard rive.
The default install from Compaq's QuickRestore CD comes with Win95 and some other software... some good, some useless (Total: approx 300MB). I also own a Win98 UPGRADE CD and a Win98SE UPDATES CD.
Instead of using the Win98 UPGRADE CD, can I use the Win98 UPDATE CD for the upgrade? I have KEYS for my CDs. Once that process is successfully completed, how would I best utilize PM on my system. I'd appreciate some feedback, however encouraging or discouraging it may be.
P.S. If needed, I'm ready to provide more system details or clarification.
