: How can I remove Mandrake 7.0 and format my Maxtor 4gig HDD and install Windows 98


My preference would be to ERASE the drive completely using Maxtor's Diagnostic Utility from:
http://www.maxtor.com/Maxtorhome.htm

Select Desktop ATA Drives under Product Support and drill down from there.

I suggest running a destructive write/read surface scan (if available) else just erase the drive and run whatever diagnostics are available. Note that the erase function MAY be called "low level format"; it is OK to use the Maxtor software on Maxtor drives.

If you cannot run a Maxtor surface scan then run scandisk, thorough surface scan after you partition and format your drive. Post again if you need partition and format instructions.

Good Luck,
Henry
