Reinstalled windows 2000 Professional after formatting the drive (60gb).  Left 9gb for DOS which is the c: drive and 51gb for the e: drive which will be the data drive.  When I try to access the e: drive I get a I/O error and can't put anything on it.  How can I fix this?

Have you actually created the second partition for your E drive yet?

Yes I did and it's the extended partition e:.  This is the drive I can't get into.

However, the hard drive was formatted, etc. on a Compac and placed in another computer.  Could this have something to do with it?

May want to update your BIOS. Is this a new drive you installed? How large were the partitions before (If you have used it before)

I would imagine you would still be able to see the partition. Go into Disk Management and see if shows up as formatted and with an assigned drive letter.


Easy way to get there - on desktop, right-click My Computer and choose Manage.  It will be in the Storage section.
