error reading fixed disk!!!!
Posted on 2001-08-27
Ihave a 20 gb hard drive and I partitioned it so that 15gb was dedicated to windows 98 and 5gb was left vacant.I wanted to put another operating system(windows NT) on my computer so I decided to utilise the 5gb by creating an extended partition and so I did and then system told me I had to shut down and reboot and then format the drive I had created. When the system booted up it asked for the win boot disk so I inserted it and it took me through to the A:
I then tried to format the drive e: and it told me that the format was not supported on drive E:
So I tried it on drive D: and it told me insufficient memory to load the system files
Finallly I tried it on drive:f and it told me it cannot format a network drive
I have tried to enter the fdisk process again in order to eliminate the partition I have created in ordrer to return to normal but it won't let me enter- it gives the message: "error reading fixed disk"
What can I do??????Where did I go wrong????
