Windows reinstall help /// hard drive priorities?
So i got this laptop that my friend stated it "puked its guts out"
I couldnt do anything on it, i was able to pull alot of his garbage off and decided it was time to reinstall windows (xp)
So anyway a few tries and i finnally got it running great
.... here is the thing
HP had the hard drive set up into 2 partitions, so i kept it that way, made one for 8gb for windows and one for the other 82gb (100gb HD)
Fine.. reformat.. ntfs format... fat32 format... good everything checked out
installed windows onto 8gb partition
then started loading all the device drivers and everything...
then i started loading it up for music and "out of HD space"
shit everything is saving in that first partition, i was dragging things onto the desktop
So i took "Program Files" and move it.. went over to 82gb partition but then it left a copy behind in the 8gb partition
Then tried "Documents and Settings" and error: Cannot copt NTuser because its in use
Where am i at?
Can i delete the "program files" out of 8gb partition and have everything work? no broken paths?
NTuser? i dont know... go into admin and try to transfer for all users? or?
What i am trying to get is so that, when he downloads, loads files, i want them going into the 82gb partition
I know the obvious of dragging into the "My Computer" actual drive but that is not easy for him to do... i need installs and everything going to the big partition
I checked the upfront properties and there is no options for the HD(s)
any input my lead me the right way
