Dear Member of the forum;
Here is my problem: I have been trying for the last week to re-partition my hard drive and to format it. Before doing, I have backed-up all my files. As a reminder, I have a Toshiba laptop with a Pentium 4 processor, 38.4GB.
I have also created a DOS start-up disk.
After partitioning the drive using fdisk command, my problem is that I can't format the new partions, either by booting from the CD or from the floppy disk with the "format c:/s or format c: or format whatever: " command.
I haven't got the windows xp start-up disk, wich I know, is very important; each time I type format .... I receive "bad command" message. I have set active the primary partition but this still doesn't sort the problem out.
Is there any way of formating the drives without erasing the new partition?
