I have installed Fedora Core on one of my old machines a few years back, and I recently dug it up to wipe Fedora out and install Windows 98. When I deleted all the partitions on it, it seems that there is a 4 mb unallocated partition on it (which on Windows is usually 8mb?) which I couldn't get rid of. I used the Ultimate Boot CD to kill everything on it, and now it shows that everything is unallocated, but I'm not sure if that 4 mb is also taken care of.
The reason I brought this up is because maybe I thought this was causing the problem to stop me from installing Windows on this machine. Every time I tried to install the OS, it would tell me "Setup cannot intstall Windows 98 on your computer. An error was detected while formatting your primary hard disk partition. Press ENTER to exit setup."
I have used so many different utility to try and delete, wipe, unpartition everything to start clean, but I have yet to succeed... If anyone knows what I could do to fix this problem, give me some advice please.
Thanks in advance.
(Oh yeah, I have tried reinstalling Fedora back on the machine, and that went smooth w/o problem, so I figure it has to be something with the partition table that Windows does not like.)
