    Hey guys,

    I just took a 250GB HDD out of my iMac which was of course formated HFS (journaled). I also had a 50GB partition of the drive formated NTFS so I could run XP with Bootcamp.

    I re-used the HDD in my Mom's PC and as I expected I can only see the 50GB partition...

    How can I reformat the ENTIRE drive NTFS?

    I own MacDrive 6, so I am thinking about installing that and seeing if I can format it that way.

    Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

    Pop your Window's cd in the drive, restart your computer. Go through like you are going to install and it will show up at the format step. Proceed with format.
