So I have successfully done single drive upgrade to 80 Gbyte Maxtor 5400rpm.


I have backed up the replaytv partition so I now want to use the 30 G Quantum drive in my win 98 SE PC.


The thing that I am not sure about is what I have to do to prepare the drive for use in win 98, and also what tools to use.


For example can I just hook it up and format from windows?


Do I need to get a tool from Quantum and do low level format?


I may want to make this a bootable drive and copy my current drive windows install over, how do I do that?


TIA

You must delete the old partitions in DOS using FDISK, then recreate a new one using FDISK again. After that, the format can be done in DOS or Windows.
