Hi, I was initially trying to partition my 40g ide hard drive to have Windows and Linux installed on it.. I used fdisk to delete the partition and then created a primary partition of 75% to install windows back onto.
The problem is that when I try to install WME from the cd-rom, it automaticly trys to format C, it formats for a while but then comes up with an Error msg which says: "Setup cannot intstall Windows ME on your computer. An error was detected while formatting your primary hard disk partition. Press ENTER to exit setup."
And now if I try format C: in dos, it works for a while but then the "Not Ready, format terminated" message appears.
Please help me with this as I cant think what else to do but buy another hard disk.. I know I should have used partition magic but I thought I'd be clever.. that'll teach me!!!
