Had activated primary partition and activated it.(40gb). Then made another partition and logical drives D:(40 gb) & E:(40gb). Then formated C;. When I restarted computer had only C: and capacity of 48gb. after deleting d,e,and c, and all partitions and trying to format disk It tells me I cannot format a network disk. Starting fdisk all over it it says I only have a tolal disk space of 48gb. This is brand new computer without an operating system.
