Kayla, you started a thread on this yesterday, and I replied with a link to
an article on doing the conversion. Did you see that link?
Please keep within the original thread rather than creating a new one, to
keep the history of what was suggested and tried.
If you can't find a previous post search for it using Google Groups Advanced
Search. Search in this newsgroup,
microsoft.public.windows.vista.installation_setup with your name as author.
Here is a link to Google Groups Advanced Search.
As to your comment about prompt mode, there is no such thing. There is safe
mode and a command prompt. You probably mean command prompt, which is where
one would type the command to convert to NTFS. To get to a command prompt
go to Start | Run. Type in cmd, click ok. That is command prompt.
Find your previous thread, go to that link I gave and see if that helps.
