Thanks for all the feedback. I have tried all except slaving the HD in another. Nothing is working yet. I have been able to actually partition and format a portion but when I go to actually install on it, it has changed size and states it is now a non-dos partition. On occasion I get the feedback that it has 2 boot records. Aaaaargh! It is now off to my day job and back at it again tonight after the fireworks. Any other ideas? I really appreciate you guys trying.

I am including a set of utilities that I've used on HDD's that might work. I do not know for sure if they will work on HDD's larger than 512 MB but it might be worth a try. Please let me know if they help. The file inside the ZIP with the lst extention is a description of what each util does. Good luck
