General discussion


I am running XP Pro, 1Gig ram, 93 GHD's.
I installed Xandros on a partition of my C: drive, then became F: drive.
In searching through my computer I cannot find anything indicating that Xandros is even on my computer, other than when I boot. The partition, F: drive shows as being empty. Can any one tell what I am missing here?

Thanks, Bill

Just checking.

Did you know Windows XP can't see file systems other than FAT, NTFS and with some tweaks maybe the old OS/2 HFS? What you are seeing appears proper to me.

There is a free ware program to help you. I had to use it recently before I migrated to my current setup.

Add up the storage capacities of C: and F:

In reply to: Xandros

What did it add up to? Does it equal to the size of the whole drive? My feelining is that if Xandros is in drive F, then it should not show up in windows.
