Formatting a hard drive

By robnmisty ·
I need to know how to format a hard drive in Win NT 4.0. I can not find a way to get into MS-DOS to use the fdisk command. Could someone please share with me a solution. Thank you very much. Robert R.

Run Disk Manager (Start | Programs | Administrative Tools (Common)) This program will allow you to delete and create partitions in either FAT16 or NTFS and then format them.

Have fun!

Disk Manager is probably Disk Administrator. Knew what I meant, Disk Administrator "manages" disks.

That is the process with NT but, I was not able to format C: due to the systems files.
