    I have a Maxtor 40gig hard drive recently tried to fdisk with it having 2 partitions on the drive. Was able to delete the 1st partition which was the primary partition, am not able to delete the 2nd partition which is EXT DOS partition. It keeps telling me "Cannot delete Extended DOS Partition while logical drives exist". Ant suggestions greatly appreciated. :confused:
