View Full Version : Hard drive partition



15-10-1999, 09:57 PM
My computer is a COMPAQ PRESARIO 4780 desktop with one hard drive of 4.2 GB running Windows 95.
I have found that there is a NON-DOS partition of 317 MB sitting on the drive. Is it safe to remove this partition?
I am trying to run the PARTITIONMAGIC V4.01 to create a partition for LINUX but the PARTITIONMAGIC refused to operate and kept telling me Error #158 and seems not able to fix this error automatically.
Could you lend any help?
Thank you and best regards.
