A person has come to me for help when installing Windows. He FDISKed and formatted correctly, but when he runs the Windows setup program he getsHis disk isn't locked or write protected or anything. What should he do next? I am running out of ideas...Setup cannot create files on your setup drive and cannot setup Windows 98,if you have HPFS or NTFS you must create an MS-DOS BOOT PARTITION, if you have LANTASTIC SERVER or SUPERSTOR compession disable it before running setup.
Oh yeah - He also gave me this info:The Mbyte value looks very suspicious. Should I tell him to run the format command again? Looks like he is out of available space to me...the small size and Usage: 100% looks strange.Code:Current Fixed Disk Drive 1 Partition Status Type Mbyte Sys Usage C: 1 A Pri-Dos 9295 Fat 32 100%
Thanks for any help.
