View Full Version : Trouble using fdisk



15-07-1999, 01:47 PM
I have been trying to create a second (4GB) partition on my 12GB hard drive on which to install Linux.
When I run fdisk (from a boot disk) it asks if I want to enable large disk support. Then, whether I choose yes or no, the program exits and I am back to the command line.
If I use fdisk /status, I get the message 'No fixed disks present'. I have no trouble booting Win98 from C.
I also tried fips20, partition resizer and aefdisk without success.
The computer is brand new, so I don't mind wiping the hard drive.
Any help appreciated.
