HDD partition probs

By yiotie ·
Hi
I partitioned my HDD in to two equal parts C, & D. Part C has been set active and formatted in to FAT32.
To do all the above I used a Win98 boot disk and the choice was to Start computer with CD-Rom support.
The problem now is when I type A> e: setup to start installing Win 2kPro in drive C from the CD-ROM , the reply says that This program can not run in DOS mode.

The other problem is when I try to format the other half Of the HDD (D) the reply says: Format not supported on drive
Any suggestions Please?
Thanks
Yiotie

To install from the Windows 2000 CD, you either need to boot to the CD, or create a set of boot floppies, which can be created by a program under one of the subdirectories on the CD, named "bootdisk" I believe.
The "setup.exe" program is a Windowsprogram, used mainly for doing upgrades.

Not sure about the problem formatting the D partition, but I'd probably try deleting and recreating the partition.
