Wont delete logical drive in ext prt

By Casemaker ·
I used a me boot disk and partitioned and formatted my drive. Primary and extended with two logical drives.C,D,E. When I ran setup it would begin tell me it was compressed and then sit at scanning the registry. i am now using a 98se boot disk and want to delete the logical drives. It let me delete e but tells me d label is not valid. the label says * Remote * and I enter it exactly but it tells me this is invalid.Any ideas?

Wont delete logical drive in ext prt

Use the Me boot disk, and delete it from there.

There is something different about the 2 fdisk programs, so see if you can delete the drive using the version of fdisk that was used to create it.

Then, when you switch back to the W98 boot disk,use the mbr switch to clear things out.
(fdisk /mbr)
Re-boot, and run fdisk again to create your partitions.

Go to this link..

This utility will help you to easily setup your hard drive... (PARTITIONING)

And may be that logical drive is from the linux partition, that can't delete with the fdisk...


Hope this help!!
