There's almost always more than one way of doing something in windows.

Glad it's sorted and you didn't have to buy another drive.

Thanks for posting back. I wasn't certain what you wanted to do other than format. Upon re-reading your first post I see you needed to delete a partition first. If you want to repartition you can use DISKPART which is a function of the Recovery Console as well. When you boot into the Recovery Console typing HELP at the command prompt will give you a list of functions. From XP in Help and Support you can do a search for Recovery Console and it will tell you more about each function. Or take a look at one of my help pages for info about the Recovery Console www.webtree.ca/windowsxp/repair_xp.htm

Partition Magic is generally an OK tool but it can be flaky especially when merging partitions. A much sturdier third party repartitioning tool is called BootIt NG from www.terabyteunlimited.com/

BTW the issue you had with the pirated copy of Partition Magic sounds interesting. I hope you resolved never to install pirated software on your production computers again.

whome, you say "so everything is back to normal".

What exactly is normal for your pc?

Glad to hear it was sorted in the end.

Take this as a learning experience to never listen to me again.
