The support for Windows 98 is fading, so you may want to reconsider removing it.

But if you insist you need to delete all partitions on the hard drive, recreate them, format, and reinstall everything. The easiest method is to use Paritition Magic or you can use FDISK. Use a Windows 98 Startup diskette to do it.

I resolved the issue by using software from my hd manufacturer. I did not want to run out and get partition magic, and fdisk did not work. Microsoft reallly does not want you to remove xp once u get it installed.....I felt like my machine had been hijacked! Anyway, I'm back up and running.....btw, I did reinstall xp since I now know how to remove it without disturbing my other partitons on the the hd.
