partitions and vista
I have two inter-related problems with my PC right now...am trying to reformat it.
My harddrives died a few weeks back so I bought some new SATA ones. My XP startup disk didn't recognize these drives for some reason, so I used my vista SP1. It worked fine and formatted the drives to NTFS.
Issue 1) How can I get my XP startup disk to recognize the drives?
But, now I'd like to partition the first drive and install XP on it, but I can't partition the drive either. For some reason (I suppose vista has changed the way drives are formatted?), Partition Magic doesn't reocgnize my drives as NTFS. It says they are bad disks.
Issue 2) Any idea what I can use to partition my harddrives now?
Hopefully someone here has experience with this. thanks for your help!!!
