yeah you can't convert back to FAT32. you can only convert from FAT to NTFS.. the only way I know of getting back to a FAT32 file system is to format the drive. Make a dos boot floppy and make sure it has fdisk and the format prog on it and see if you can just fdisk it and start over with FAT32 using the dos format prog. I don't think partition magic will do what you want to do.. it just splits up the partitions and keeps from losing your data. its been a while since I used partition magic so Im not sure if it will do what you want or not. I do know with XP you can boot off the CDROM with the windows XP OS install CD and fdisk the drive and reformat it in FAT32. it will try to install XP but Im sure you can just cancel out of it before it trys to install the XP OS. not sure about win2k tho.slimsergi said:I was trying to follow the How-to guide to upgrade my Tivo with a second drive. I have set everything up correctly (3 hard drives in hda-hdc spots). However, when I try to mount my hda drive (the one that contains windows on it), it says that it cannot mount ntfs Kernnel or something like that.
Looking back through the guide, I believe that I need to have a fat32 partition on this drive for it to work. Does anyone know how to do this? I see that I can download partition magic, but I am not sure if it will work for what I am trying to do. I tried to install win2k on the drive, but it does not have to option to format with fat32, only ntfs. Any suggestions or am I going about this all wrong?
