    What "fdisk" are you using??? The only one I know of that works on NTFS partitions (other than 3rd party ones like partition magic)is the NT partition manager with win NT or 2K or XP install progs.

    The old standard fdisk for Win 9X/ME will not adjust NTFS partitions at all.

    I have had to recommence the install and use the repartition manager with the install to overcome a NTFS file probs.
    The older I get...the better I was

    i used partition magic

    i also tryed zero filling the drive but that didnt make any difference at all.
    i tryed another hdd in the machine and it didnt load either so it cant be the hdd.

    all i can think it could be now is motherboard/cpu/memory as i have replaced and tested every other part.

    Try fdisk with DOS 5 or lower as these won't recognise FAT32 or NTFS file partitions and will report as non-recognisable but will do a better job at unmounting them than DOS 6 and above will and will leave some stuff behind.
    Also try doing some looping tests with Memtest86 as the problem maybe that your system memory maybe causing the errors (I've came across this a few times to which I've slow memory speed down to get rid of the errors) and it just runs from a floppy in the way a bootdisk does. :smokin:

    i tried the hard drive in another machine and it loads up fine without any hassles so the problem isnt related to the HDD

    must be memory or motherboard dunno kepp the suggestions coming they are well appreciated.
