I had a older Western Digital EIDD hard drive installed Model #AC28400 and since talking to Dell Tech, they had me do something that erased the Logical partition. The drive is 40GB and it shows only an 8GB space. How can I get the logical partition back?

There are various partition recovery software out there but it may not be recoverable. If you don't have anything important on the drive i'd just repartition.

I have tried different types of re-partitioning, formatting, and just about anything else, and none of these work. They only recognize 8GB of a 40GB drive.

What exactly is the method you have used to try to delete and re-enable a partition/s?
Have you removed all non-dos partitions?
Please be more specific.

If you aren't interested in keeping data just delete every single partition and start from scratch. If all u want is say win98, just delete everything and create partitions you need. Tho you prolly wont be able to recover whatever lost data there is now as you said you already went through numerous partitioning and reformatting, there may be a chance.
