    Hi,

    I am trying to get rid of NTFS and do a fresh winxp install. Can you tell me how depart.exe works? do I just put it on the boot disk, run it and then create a new partiton. Thank you.

    depart???


    If you want to reinstall windows... boot from the windows cd, then format the disk. Then it will install.

    Hello,

    I spelled it wrong its delpart.

    I am trying to talk mt daughter through this install over the phone..She had a virus so we decided to re install because we could not get windows to run..Now it still won't run..Booting from the CD starts but then the blue screen says Windows has detected an errpr and will be shut down to avoid damage to your computer. After going over a few things last night it seems she has too many drives. A, B,C,D,E. So I gues what we formated is only part of the drive. Her computer must have had partitions which she was not aware of. Now I am thinking I need to run partition magic but I really don't know how especially when we can't get it running. Very hard to do over the phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Irene

    hi onely

    easier than Delpart....go to the manufacturer of your hard drives site and download the utility to restore the hard drive to factory new condition.
