i have a compaq presario 5441. i recently reformatted the hard drive with a floppy i made. i put in the restore disc and it gave me the error "Free Space Not Found." I was told to use fdisk to delete all partitions on the hard drive. So i am using the windows 98 cd to boot the computer into dos but it always goes straight to "A:>" and the "d:" drive (cd) is the only one i can switch to. If i try to switch to "C:" it says invalid drive. ive gone through every letter and a & d are the only two i can use. The hard drive is connected and it has power. I don't know why it would stop working after a reformat. I don'tknow alot about fdisk or alot about dos commands. So how can i delete the partitions, or whatever i need to do to reinstall windows 98/compaq restore? p.s. when i try to install from the windows 98 second edition disc it says hard drive not installed properly and it gives some other reason why it may not be able to install to hard drive. hope yall can help. thanks tyler does anyone have any ideas?
