Thanks for your reply.
Yes I could see the 2 partitions (C: and D:) before reading your post. Used the same program as you indicated. D: was empty.
In the mean time here is what I have done - not to proud of myself. See why below.
I got so fed up with this computer that I started downloading windows XP. I have a OEM disk with Key.
Of course XP could not see the C drive nor the D partition (HDD Driver problems from what I read on the web later).
So I reformatted both !!! in DOS thinking it would fix my problem. Big mistake I found out.
Now I have nothing to play with... -might be a good thing -
Don't have backup CDs either.
I read some discussions on the web with downgrading to XP and it's not good. all kinds of problems with drivers...
So I stopped.
What can I do now?
Thanks for taking care of this post.
