    Hi folks,

    Just received my new ACER laptop (thanks to all the wilders members who helped). The first thing I wanted to do was to install FD-ISR, but whilst doing so I found out that the hard drive has been formatted by FAT32 F****** B*******S! (please excuse my french). Is their anything I can do?

    Win Xp MCE came pre-installed with no installation disc nor any driver discs for my graphics card, web cam, etc.

    Can I somehow convert the FAT32 to NTFS? All suggestions welcome

    Start a CMD console (run cmd.exe in start/run)

    Run the command
    Code:
    c:\>convert c: /fs:ntfs
    This needs a reboot to complete.
