Default Problem with accessing a partition

My 160GB Western Digital (48-bit LBA), PATA hard disk (the only HD I have on
this machine) is for a reason partitioned as follows:
C: (Win98se, primary, 14.5GB), * (WinXP, primary, 30.6GB), D: (logical,
11.8GB), E: (logical, 7.6 GB) and * (unallocated, primary, 87.5 GB).
All partitions are FAT32, created with the aid of Partition Magic (of Power
Quest).
Both OSs have been installed independently of each other.
I keep documents and photos on D: and some older backups on E:. Both
partitions are easily accesible for the active OS.
Yesterday, I tried to cross the 32GB limit (by 3GB) on the WinXP partition,
by resizing it (while in a hidden status). I did it with the aid of Partition
Magic 8.0 in Win 98se. After this resizing WinXP seemed to work OK and I
could easily access the files on the D: and E: partitions. However, I was
unable to access files on D: from Win98se - their names were scrumbled.
Strangely enough files on E: were accesible.
After resizing the WinXP partition down to the previous size, clicking on D:
issued a message of the type: “D:\ is not accessible, a system device doesn’t
work”. However, restarting Win98se returned everything to normal.
Do you have any idea about the reason of such a behavior?
Is there any chance to use bigger than 32 GB WinXP partition on my system
without compromising normal work of Win98se?
Thanks for your help,
Andrew

Default Problem with accessing a partition

No C:\ @500MB for MSDOS need for AutoExec.bat, Boot, Config.sys, bootsect,
boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM, msdownld.tmp
VIDEOROM.BIN, + More
For the way you have it XP Boot is in win 98 For all the BOOT are in WIN98
you need C:\ for DOS LOOL!

D:\win98
E:\XP
F:\ so on, so on

Default Problem with accessing a partition

P.S. the XP needed the 80 GB to run good!
O by the way the only Drive you can make Bigger is the last Dive
If you make C:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from D:\
If you make D:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from E:\
If you make E:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from F:\
If you make F:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from G:\
If you make G:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from unallocated,
primary, 87.5 GB

you have to move the Space down form to unallocated
You can not give D:/ 3gb if all the Free Space from E:\ have is to you have
to Move Free Space Down!
OK

So Start over

Default Problem with accessing a partition

P.S.S

Move Free Space Down from unallocated!
First you need to Defragmentation All Drives
then Restart Computer
Move unallocated Space Down one Drive
Then Defragmentation That Drive
then Restart Computer
Move from that Drive some Free Space Down one Drive
Then Defragmentation The two Drives
then Restart Computer
Move from that Drive some Free Space Down one Drive
Then Defragmentation The three Drives
then Restart Computer
Move from that Drive some Free Space Down one Drive
Then Defragmentation The fore Drives
then Restart Computer

So on So On!!!

For that's the way to do it

Have Fun

Default Problem with accessing a partition

Thanks for fast reaction and your suggestions I'm afraid they don't answer my
questions.
1. Are you really familiar with Partition Magic 8?
It does everyting nicely fand automatically for you, although it has to go
through several steps you are suggesting. It does this using its Wizard(s)
and you decide to some extent how to do it. I've been using it for quite a
time without any problems at all, even in the described by me configuration.
2. In order to make a partition bigger you have to have free space in the
adjacent partition, not necessarily the next one, as you are suggesting.
3. I don't need C: for DOS either
4. If you use D: for Win 98, then you can't have WinXP in E:, as this is
equivalent of having 2 active partitions at any time, which would only ask
for a disaster. I agree, however, that WinXP should be installed in the
partition following directly Win98, which is the case on my hard disk.

Default Problem with accessing a partition

I really familiar with Partitioning all Software work the some when in
making a Partition!
You have to move the Free Space down from drive to drive Magic 8 can help
in the moving of the Free Space and
Have to Defragment as you go too!

our you will have Fragment it one Drive that go to the Fragment of the Drive
you made bigger!
and the drive will stop working!
Remember that why you here right!

If you make E:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from F:\
If you make F:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from G:\
If you make G:\ bigger it will take the Free Space from unallocated,
primary, 87.5 GB

you have to move the Space down form to unallocated
You can not give D:/ 3gb if all the Free Space from E:\ have is to you
have
to Move Free Space Down!
OK

So Start over

No C:\ @500MB for MSDOS need for AutoExec.bat, Boot, Config.sys,
bootsect, boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM, msdownld.tmp
VIDEOROM.BIN, + More
For the way you have it XP Boot is in win 98 For all the BOOT are in
WIN98
you need C:\ for DOS LOOL!

D:\win98
E:\XP
F:\ so on, so on

My 160GB Western Digital (48-bit LBA), PATA hard disk (the only HD I
have
on
this machine) is for a reason partitioned as follows:
C: (Win98se, primary, 14.5GB), * (WinXP, primary, 30.6GB), D:
(logical,
11.8GB), E: (logical, 7.6 GB) and * (unallocated, primary, 87.5 GB).
All partitions are FAT32, created with the aid of Partition Magic (of
Power
Quest).
Both OSs have been installed independently of each other.
I keep documents and photos on D: and some older backups on E:. Both
partitions are easily accesible for the active OS.
Yesterday, I tried to cross the 32GB limit (by 3GB) on the WinXP
partition,
by resizing it (while in a hidden status). I did it with the aid of
Partition
Magic 8.0 in Win 98se. After this resizing WinXP seemed to work OK and
I
could easily access the files on the D: and E: partitions. However, I
was
unable to access files on D: from Win98se - their names were
scrumbled.
Strangely enough files on E: were accesible.
After resizing the WinXP partition down to the previous size, clicking
on
D:
issued a message of the type: “D:\ is not accessible, a system device
doesn’t
work”. However, restarting Win98se returned everything to normal.
Do you have any idea about the reason of such a behavior?
Is there any chance to use bigger than 32 GB WinXP partition on my
system
without compromising normal work of Win98se?
Thanks for your help,
Andrew
