Adding a Partition after XP has been installed
Posted on 2004-08-17
I discovered today that Autocad 14 will not run on XP, only on w98 --- so, why not create a partition of about 5-6Gb where I can run W98 --- sounds 'logical' ( pun intended.)
Questions/Problems: (1) I only have the W98 upgrade and no longer any full windows OS except XP
(2) XP is up and running, and disk management doesn't allow (I think) carving out a partition without reinstalling XP
(3) Does that mean I run XP to create the partition, then install W98 (if you say I can with an upgrade and not a full package) and then re-install XP?
(4) Do I have to uninstall XP to do any or all of this?
(5) I don't suppose I can copy some W98 files from another computer where its running and 'fool' the upgrade into believing its the operating system (I don't want to do anything illegal --- but I don't feel like buying an old OS --- again!)
