URGENT HELP REQUIRED PLZ!!!!!

Postby alig » Sun Jun 01, 2003 1:25 am

hi,
i want to install mandrake 9.0. i got that cd's and partition magic 8. i installed partition magic and bootmagic. i have 2 20gb HD installed. the first with C:(win98 9GB) and E(9GB). the second with D:(winxp 19GB). on startup i get an option to start either 98 or Xp. i want to install mandrake on the first HD by taking 4 Gb from E.

I did so with partition magic 8. i clicked on install new OS. it led me through all the stuff. i made the new partition after E with 4 Gb. i printed the instructions before the wizard end as well. then when i cliked on apply. so the process started . then it gave me the error "ERROR #2003 FILE SIZE DOES NOT MATCH FAT ALLOCATION FOR FILE." THEN it gave me error#903 FOUND TOO MANY ERRORS> ABORTING."

CAn someone plz help me install this thing. thanks

do u know where is ur boot.ini file ..its the bootloader file usually in the partition of win98 or the partiton of OS which was instaled first

reading ur post. i think its in ur c:win98 (first hard disk)

amd XP on second hardisk
as ur E 9GB is on 1 st disk

easiest way is to copy all data of E to D-XP and remove the 2nd disk
reboot again with only win98 HD. fdisk
remove the extended (may be logical)E drive)
make new paartition extended 4GB logacal partitiones and leave remaining 4 gb free not partitioned.
now if u want to have a 3 boot optiones then add ur 2 nd Hd. boot from bootable cd..
use disk druid for partioioning in linux ..carefully make the 3750 mb / as ext FS type
and one 256 mb app. swap
and procede partition
good lluck


reboot and format them
