    Creating a 2Gb partition from boot...

    I need to create a 2Gb partition on an 8Gb Hard drive to install NT4 server on, problem is the setup program itself wont do it! So i need to find some sort of partition creation program that i can boot from and do the task.
    Or i need to find a "crack" for the Hard Drive capacity limit on NT4

    Can anyone help?

    For future reference wouldn't creating a Windows 98 boot disk (or downloading one from www.bootdisk.com ) then using FDISK to create your 2GB partition work? Or alternatively install the SCSI drive in a secondary system and use Partition Magic which is nice and simple to use.
