Default Partition Problem!! HELP!!

sponsored links

 
I can only see 4GB of my 8GB HD that i partitioned into 2 drives. this what the partition layout says:

partition status type volum label mbytes sys use
c: 1 A pri dos 4032 FAT32 50%
2 ext dos 4032 50%

I had a duel xp/98 system. '98 was on the primary partition, and xp on the extended. When i installed xp i converted it to NTFS. Now, i just want xp on my system. When i go to delete the extended partition this is what it says:

"cannot delete extended partition while logical drives exist"



when i go to delete the logical drives it says:



"no logic drives defined"

"all logic dirve deleted in extended partition"



if i try and create logical drives, it says:


"no logic drives defined"

"all available space in the extended partition is assigned to logical drives"


if i try to format drive "D:"(where xp was installed), it says:

"format not supported"
"format terminated"

i can install an OS on and delete the primary partition, but i cant get access to the extended. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Nevermind. Thanks to the Mods for posting out the helpful links in the first topic. I came across this from one of the links:

********fdisk.radified.com/delete_partitions.htm

so if anyone has trouble getting rid of partitions, the link above should do the trick
