Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Installing WinXP or Win2K on 20 GB HDD and Mouse does not select text.

\015 While having a HDD 3Gb it was running WinXp with 98MB memory. When the HDD was replaced with 20 GB IDE Type 65 HDD it is not possible to install any OS other than Win 98SE. If tried, the installation goes upto reboot and an error message comes up - NTLDR missing. Standard solutions like partitioning with a Software, copying Sys.com to c:/ and reinstalling, installing Win2K directly and as an upgrade, and similarly /Win XP does not change the situation. \015\012\015\012Currently I am running Win98SE making two partitions of 9529MB (FAT32). Any help in installing Win 2K or WinXP on drive C: without having to loose data on D: is most welcome.\015\012\015\0122. All of a sudden the Mouse pad which was working like a right handed mouse hitherto stopped selecting and moving text in any screen or page after installing updates to Word 2000. I am forced to use it now as a left handed mouse. Any solution to turn this into the old right handed mouse?\015

Answers :

Format the C drive as NTFS and leave the D Drive in tact whilst going through the windows xp setup process.
\015\01210gb partition should be plenty of space although 98mb ( are you reffering to the amount of memory ) if so then that may be the issue and if possible I would upgrade that.
