When installing my XP PRO I said yes to formatting the hard drive to NTFS, should I have left it as FAT or what ? Also when I start the computer it says invalid partition file run HDPREPEZ what does this mean

Do you have some kind of hard drive overlay software like EZDrive running on your hard drive? Is this problem related to your other post concerning IE and email?

From everything I have read so far "HDPREPEZ" is used to set up a partition on a hard drive for hibernation. Did you do an upgrade to XP or was this a full blown installation where you fdisked and formatted the drive?
