Abstract: CANNOT DELETE PARTITION USING DOS FDISK
Cannot delete partition created by ServerGuide using DOS FDISK.
ServerGuide creates a C: partition and copies the latest drivers files for installing NetWare.
Some of these files are copied in lower case which DOS does not handle, so DOS assigns the string "Am" to the empty volume label of C:, the letter "m" in lower case makes it impossible for DOS FDISK to delete the partition, because DOS FDISK only allows a label in upper case.
PROBLEM ISOLATION AIDS:
Novell NetWare 4.11 and 5.0
If you want to use DOS FDISK to delete the partition created by ServerGuide, and the C: volume label is "Am", first use the "label" DOS command to rename the label to any name in uppercase, this will allow DOS FDISK to delete the partition.
