  1. ok i remember how to do it but when i try and do it it says this "Windows cannot delete the active system partition on this disk" so im guessing i have to make it unactive? how would i do this?
  2. ahh ok i remembered to right click my computer and click manage, then to disk management, what do i do after that to put C: (7.72 of 7.81 gb) to the D: (12.6 of 33.5 GB) correctly?
  3. ok i finally got the Gparted cd to work and i formatted that C: drive and got it erased, it now says 7.72 gb of 7.80 gb free, and i used to remember how to extend that part of it back onto the D: drive but it has completely skipped my mind right now, can anyone refresh me?
  4. i have vista on my D: drive and xp on C:, the boot manager, whenever i turn my computer on it asks to run vista or earlier OS (xp) but whenever i click earlier OS it boots up and then goes to a blue screen, i loaded up the gparted cd and i no what to do to get to where i need but do i click delete partition or format it?
  5. ok i have the .iso burnt to a cd, the partition i want to delete is C: with 7.80 gb on it. the harddrive i have is called a "Toshiba MK8034GSX ATA Device", which it says is a sata-150, so the name in the program would be called sda3? or sda1? or what? and to prevent further posts from me can you tell me what to do after that, much appreciated, thanks
  6. what do i do with the .zip file?
  7. ok and this will let me delete everything off the partition including the XP os, and i will be able to move the 8 gb on it back to my regular drive?
  8. ok how would i go about doing this? do i just download the files to a cd? where wouldi get the files or do i have to buy one?
  9. how do i make it inactive? Open up a command prompt and type DISKPART. Type LIST DISK Type SELECT DISK n (where n is the number of the old Win98 drive) Type LIST PARTITION Type SELECT PARTITION n (where n is the number of the active partition you wish to make inactive) Type INACTIVE Type EXIT to exit DISKPART Type EXIT again to exit the command prompt Reboot i found those instructions on a different site but i dont want to try it yet because the site looked kinda shifty, would this work?
