My main drive is a Maxtor DiamondMax 120gb SATA150 I am formatting the crapper right now... Its a WD400EB. ATA100 or something.
The drive originally had 2 partitions on it. One is the main partition, the other is a HP Recovery partition. I think I have to format both partitions seperately. Is there anyway to recombine the 2 partitions into one big one after I format them?
Disk manager, kill BOTH partitions, make a nice new 40gb NTFS one and be happy
Disk manager... Is that built into WindowsXP?
Or is it something I download?
Right click MY COMPUTER, select manage, click disk manager down the left side, right click the drive you put in and delete the partition, right click and create the new one.
Ahh, been a long time since I have used the manage command, silly me forgot about it.
Thanks for the help Creating the el grande partition now.
