NTFS Partition on 30 GiG hard Disk

By jahbruce ·
In a dual boot system, containing two fat 16 partitions, one each for Win 98 and Win NT 4.0 and a fat 32 partition hidden from Win NT, can I create a NTFS partition on the same
hard disk and hide that partition from Win 98?

Yes you can. Windows 98 cannot see an NTFS partition (of course there are tools out there that make this possible, but notout of the box), the same way that Windows NT 4.0 cannot see a FAT32 partiton.

HI there,
You can create an NTFS partition while in Win98 by using a software such as Partition Magic 4.0.
This will allow to create an NTFS partition and ask for reboot. After reboot it creates it through DOS mode.

Yes! if you have enough space unpartitioned
NT won't see fat32 partitions
Win9x wont't see NTFS partitions
You can also Install w9x and NT on the same fat16 partition, with different windows directories.
