Windows XP Install problem
I am trying to upgrade my win98 comp to xp pro but during the compatabilaty check it says that I have a conflect between my tnt2 ultra and my asus p5a mobo. The thing is that there is no conflict. Any ideas.
Also, how do you cahange a fat32 drive to an NTFS drive.
Not sure how to change your Fat32 to NTFS from the upgrade version. But i just pop in the CD Win XP Pro and let it run the setup. There will be an option to format the hard disk with either Fat32 or NTFS.
About your graphics card and the motherboard. If it works ignore the warning.
It also happened to my ADSL Modem drivers. I called the ADSL modem company up to comfirm about the driver installation, they just said contiune and download the latest drivers for it.
problem with the conflect is that it wont let me install. says that I need to resolve the conflict.
Well, there are two ways you can run NTFS:
1. At the beginning stage of the XP setup, you will have the option to use the current file system or format to NTFS.
2. You can also convert to NTFS from FAT(32) by typing the follwing on RUN:
convert D: /fs:ntfs
D would be the letter of the drive to convert to NTFS...
#2 method will convert the file system to NTFS without any data loss. Just keep in mind that you cannot revert to FAT(32) after the conversion without a third-party disk utility..
As for you conflict problem, I would suggest popping in a different PCI or AGP card and get XP installed and then reinstalling the TNT2 card...
Finaly fixed it. I just had to hack the list that contains the compatibilaty info and just delet the line that refered to my video drivers. Windows never missed it.
I also found and was able to use the command line to convert my hard drive. Thanks.
