I make up a boot CD or diskette with Win98se.exe, then add DELPART.EXE from http://www.bootdisk.com
You should try XP's installer to see if it works, but if not, try my recipe.
Excuse the ignorant question, however, I do not know the answer, so please advise.
I have a genuine Windows XP Pro CD with a unique Product Key; IOW, legally purchased. Can the XP Pro CD be used to delete a 'non-DOS' partition (NTFS) or would I have to use FDisk or GDisk, in order to delete this 'non-DOS' partition (NTFS).
The excellent Michael Stevens Clean Install Windows XP site states, verbatim, 'If setup returns a message the partition contains the setup files and cannot be deleted use the info from this link: Delete NON-DOS Partition'. This, whilst useful, does not really answer my query.
I look forward to your replies???
