    use FDISK correctly and it will delete and/or create whatever partitions you need. If you're not careful, you could easily do the wrong thing with it. Run FDISK from a bootdisk again and tell it to delete the partitons (it may say non-dos partitions if it doesn't recognize the partition type)

    thanks for the reply first chance I'v had to get back ; deleted all partitions rerun FDISK , made new partition formated tryed to install WIN/ME would not boot , tryed 98 same thing install seemed to go ok but nither system would boot so i tyred server 2000 no problem, installed and booted OK. Now for a couple of days I have played with 2000 and I can do nothing on it install a game it want play serf the intrnet OK cant get apps. to work. So now I decided to let it upgrade to XP as i now how to work it a little better, my XP is a upgrade verision not full install , it said it could not upgrade the system (server 2000) so I clicked ok and XP went into a full install , so I let it run to see what would happen, now I have both systems on same disk and they both work I can boot either one , how can this work I made no partition for XP drive is 9.6 scis (i thank it is) both systems shoe fuul size.

    alright, I think it's time you gave us your full system specs. This sounds like it is going to be more than just some funky partition issue.
