Partition

9 posts in this topic

I have my hard drive partitioned, and half of it has Windows xp installed, the other half has Fedora Core installed.

Would I be able to remove that partition and allow windows to use the entire hard drive without having to reformat?

yes. you cant do it with something like fdisk though. Go out and get Partition Magic or something similar and you can repartion without destroying data.

Instead of using parition magic to resize your paritions. Why don't you just reformat the second partition to FAT or NTFS? That way next time you want to try linux or freebsd all you have to do is transfer the data off that partition and reformat it.

Partition magic is definitely the way to go, if you can purchase an older copy like 8.0 it was developed by PowerQuest before Symantec bought them out.

Also I would keep a boot-ready set of rescue disks, it's just like anything else that's low-level, cover your hiney!
