Hard Drive With "Non-Removable" Partitions
I have a 10 gig Western Digital HD that I use for "test runs" of various Linux distros. I am trying to Fdisk & Format this drive back to the full 10 gigs using a Win98SE boot floppy.
Fdisk shows the folloiwing:
C: 1 PRI DOS 5726 MB
__2 EXT DOS 4055 MB
____(There are no Logical Drives)
But when I try to remove the PRI DOS partition I get the message "Cannot remove PRI DOS partition with an EXT DOS partition".
When I try to remove the EXT DOS partition I get the message "Cannot remove EXT DOS partition with Logical Drive".
When I try to remove the Logical Drive I get the message "There are NO Logical Drives".
I suspect what DOS is calling a "Logical Drive" is a left over Linux Swap partition. DOS/Win98SE "knows something is there" it just can't identify it.
I had this problem before on other Linux HD's I just can't remember how I solved it.
Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated !!!
