 i am using DeviceIoControl() with IOCTL_DISK_UPDATE_PROPERTIES parameter to refresh the system to show the newly
created partition which i have created by modifying the partition manually. But the funtion works for only the system having windows version Xp or above. I want to know how to perform the same function on windows 98 and 2000.

I don't think there is any way on older versions of Windows.  You must reboot after modifying the partition table.
