    Re: how to change fdisk out of standard mode

    Could you please explain more what you are doing.
    List all the steps you have gone through.

    Are you doing a new setup or is an OS (which) already installed?
    If it is installed, are you an administrator?

      There are a lot of DOS / Windows 9x and FDISK versions out there. which are you using?

      Also, what is the drive size / partition layout you are trying to work against?

      Did you try Google:

      Looks like this may be a HIMEM.SYS issue.
      Cheers,

            Cause you don't have a legal license topic is closed.
            You can contact me via PM is needed, however according the announcement, you should know that illegal software isn't allowed.

            Questions or answers with such items will be deleted by the moderator, and cause your account to be banned for life.

            Just to make myself clear: Asking a question about a serial number for any program is illegal. Giving such a serial is illegal. Asking about Windows Activation and how to change a CD-key for XP is ok, but asking how to bypass the activation process or the Windows Genuine Check is not legal.

            No, braindumps are NOT legal. You might get away with just talking about them, but you will be deleted if you post questions from actual dumps or provide links to such dumps or to companies that offer dumps for money.

                For DR-DOS:

                http://www.drdos.com/dosdoc/qkstart/00ugpref.htm

                FDISK has been enhanced and now has two modes of operation. The default, standard mode has not been changed and works in the same way as previous versions. This is the recommended way of using FDISK. The /x switch changes to extended mode. It allows you to add and remove non-DOS partitions. This is for advanced users only.
