    recently i converted my 40gb hd to NTFS. i have 2 bootable floppies.
    1 created in win98se ( that was when i had fat32 )
    2nd i created under winXP pro ( under ntfs )
    when i am trying to boot using either of the floppy it's give error that cannot boot since the disk is not FAT.

    how to created bootable floppy that works in NTFS.

    i think u meant reads NTFS

    well if u r using a dos boot disk ..sorry to say u will not be able to access ur NTFS partitions

    How ever u cud use 3rd party softwares that read the NTFS volumes and allow u to copy data from the NTFS volume to any FAT volume


    like this one
    Code:
    http://www.bootdisk.com/txtfiles/readntfs.htm
    download : http://www.bootdisk.com/mindy/readntfs.zip

    just make a normal boot disk and then copy this progy to the disk and boot into dos..
    To access the NTFS partition simply run the progy
    ......... :wink:

    how am i supposed to use the software when it isn't booting under dos.

    as for as DIGIT DOS i have to wait till 7th or 8th before it reaches me.

    for booting into DOS, ur 98 bootable floppy will do.
    extract the program given by JAK to this floppy and boot.

    u can boot ith this floppy even WITHOUT HARD DISK.
    so NTFS/FAT32 should not be problem.
