Just put a new HDD in my Toshiba Satellite 2435-225 but instead of the standard single partition I created four. This I think is the limit for laptop. Anyway, I installed XP Pro in C. In the disk manager everything checks out OK. I formatted E (programs) and it is ok...can access it. Hair pulling problem is when I install programs it wants to put them in C. I don't know how to direct install to E,F,G and whats left for an extended partition (word doc's).
I have not formatted F and G and have not created extended partition yet but C and E are active.
I have googled and searched but haven't found the answer....leaning on you now....thanks for the help
