W98SE partition
sibrag Feb-26-01 11:57 PM
Over the weekend I had to reformat my HD, and subsequently to reinstall W98SE, along with other software. Now with all behind me, the system is quite solid.

When I attepted to run Norton's Speed disk, it reminded me that I may forgotten to partition the drive, which may have been the case.

When I checked into it, using FDISK, it indicated that all was indeed fine, and 100% of the space had been used as primary partition.

Is there a way to make CERETAIN that indeed all is well?

Does W98 automatically do the partitioning as part of the pre-install procedure - which indeed seems to be the case?

I am aware the the glitch in Norton Utilities, which may report the POSSIBLE porblem, however, in this case it may indeed have been the case, as I may have forgotten to set the partition.

Thanks in advance

Sib.
