HELP! My C:drive and WinME disappeared!

By kpriestess ·
I'm going out of my MIND! Formatted harddrive-had to partition it-but "forgot" to FAT32. . . so loaded Millenium on C (32) and software on new partition (16)-didn't work. . .impatiently exited (somehow) - and C: became MS-RAM with windows on it - can't find it-can't delete it-cant reload win(single user) can't do ANYTHING!!! How do I find this damned MS-Ram and wipe it out. . . ? PLEASE!! I've been working on this for THREE DAYS!

Are you able to boot to a floppy? If so, try using a start up disk to run fdisk and repartition the drive. You'll have to reformat as well, but it should then allow you to load Windows.

Thank you for the response, but I had already done this--twice, in fact (AFTER the initial format/partition/load).

Thank you too. . .but as mentioned above, I was way past this. ME "floated" up into the inaccessible part of memory. (I have the tech experience, despite the lack of proper lingo). Once the 1st version of ME was completely out to sea, and ME was reloaded-the ME reading "MS-RAM" was pulling parts of other software into DOS-until they weren't working either! Format/repartition read A:C:E:F:(last 2CDs)on scan, but diagnostics loaded on E: (rendering CDs F/G) and C read (I forgot)something about unable to read media type. . .
