Win2k running 27gig drive

By banditx ·
I am running 2 Physical drives
#1 is 8gig #2 is 27 gig
#1 is partitioned 6gig/2gig (Drive c / e)
Win2k is on e: win98 is on c: win2k can see and read c: and see's d: (the 27gig drive) but think's it's a 7.84gig drive and every tim i try to access it it tells me that it needs to be formatted,. if i try to format the drive win2k tells me the drive is defective,. in win98 the drive shows up and works perfectly,. (not after i attempt to format it in win2k)
All I want is to be able to read the drive in both win98 and win2k I have tried Installing win2k in both ntfs AND Fat32
It is currently in fat32 And I Perfer it that way,. any help would be great thanks in advance

Proposed Answer
use the Disk Manager tool under Win2K, **** away the partition, and create the partition in order to format from there for the 2nd drive using FAT32. That should work.

When I try to format it in the Disk Manager tool It says the maximum size I can format at is 8056,.. So no help there

That's the maximum you can put W2k on for it to work. the solution is to put W2K on C: or E: and it will recongize the 27GB partition. I know this doesn't help but that's the solution. Sorry!

I was able to get the HDD Working on my Raid Controller card,. I think it was a Motherboard/Bios config issue with my onboard IDE,. It is now working perfectly in both win98/win2k Thanks anyhow,.
