  1. Hi All,

    While installing windows XP I changed my file system to NTFS, but now I want to install windows 98 and do dual boot. How do I convert my hard drive back to FAT32?

    Thanking you in advance.

    Sorry - too late. If you want to dual boot W98 anda XP you must always load the older OS first.

    Have a look in the security and the web forum. There is plenty of info on how to create and use a virtual machine which is far easier than dual boot.

    You can create a fat32 partition on your drive with Partition Magic, but its not free.

    Partition Magic should be able to convert back if you must.

    Sorry - forgot about a virtual machine.
    There is Partition Manager which is a freebie on the front of PCPro in the UK this month. Just as good and maybe you could find a download if you are not in UK.
