Old ibm aptiva 2161-c9e (using product recovery cd & system diagnostics cd also) hard drive crashed cant get anything off of it so i had to install new hard drive. old one was 10gb new one is 15gb. anyways i created primary dos partition extended partition and then logical in fdisk. says restart computer so i do. and then it says continuing aptiva recovery and then below that pops up
" 11 - there may not be enough space on your hard disk to install this software "
tried an 8gb hd 15gb hd and 80gb hd. the 8 and 80 are empty i know for a fact. there were not any partitions on the 15gb so like i said i created them. when you pull up the partition info it says file system unknown where it should say fat32. kind of a newb when it comes to this sorta stuff although im not a complete newb. hopefully somebody will take their time to point me in the direction of what the hell im doing wrong lol. thank you in advance ive been at this for hours upon hours plus a few more hours. actually its been like 3 days lol but anyways sommeeeebodddyyyy helllpppp meeeee
