I changed the 12 GB HDD with a 40 GB HDD. But I could not partition it this time. Last time with the help from this forum I had partitioned the 12 GB to use with Win 98 and XP. I seem to forgot the procedure to partition the HDD. I think it was during the initial setup by Data Recovery CD when I was asked to creat partition (if any). This time I did not see any such query. Please help as without XP a lot of my devices won't work...no drivers.

Hi

I use the software Partitions Magic 8 to create, manage and handle my partitions on the HDD. In my opinion itís the best program. I recommend to check it.

But nevertheless check this topic:

I visited the site and downloaded the trial version of partition magic 8. Will it be ok or do I have to buy the full version?
I have default windows 98SE on my tecra 8100 and I want to partition the HDD and also install Windows XP. Will the partition magic work on the windows 98SE which I installed using data recovery CD ?
How to go about it ? Can you elaborate please ?

Hello

According to this page it should be possible to use the PM8 on the Win98se OS.

If you want to know how this program works so please visit this site:

There you will find a user manual. I think there you will find detailed descriptions.


Good luck
