so im at the library typing this right now
ok so I have a Dell Dimension 8400 at the end of 2004
It has worked since recently when I got a virus and decided to reboot
When I was reformatting, I selected one of the partitions to install windows xp, but a warning came up saying that there could be problems with windows if you had multiple operating systems on one partition. I carelessly ignored it, and when i was done reformatting the comp, it had minor problems and its really annoying. So Yea i gues i shouldve listened, but there were only 2 partitions to choose from. The one i chose or the other one that only has 8 mb of storage.
So does anyone know how to fix this, such as making one of the operating systems deleted or soemthing?
And also, can someoen explain what a partition is. The partition I chose was located in the C drive and had like 75,000 Mb and the other partition was 8 mb, so I had no choice but to add another operating system.
Any suggestions, fixes, or advice would greatly be appreciated! =]
