I'm working on an older compaq laptop that has a 3 gig hard drive that's partitioned into a c: and d: drive. I just reformated both partitions because there was so much junk on it. I want to know if I HAVE to have two separate partitions with this hard drive...is there some limitation with the drive since it's older that would force me to have to have 2 partitions? Or, can I simply go in to FDISK and delete all of the partions and just create one 3 gig partition which would be the c: drive?

What type of laptop is it? What are the specs on the CPU ? Age ? That has a lot to do with how big of a HDD you can have in it .. But I was just thinking of it can see all of the HDD at boot .. then you shouldn't have any trouble fdisking it and making it all one partition. Because the motherboard doesn't care about the size of the partition just the size of the HDD
