    Once again, the question is rather poorly-written, ie are we on a standalone server, or part of a domain. Also, re partitioning a disk, you would need to know if the disk was currently basic or dynamic.

    Depending on the above, theoretically 3 of the 4 answers could be correct, and at the moment you are not wrong in what you have chosen.

    Welcome to the cruel and twisted world that is decyphering exam questions, Peter. I bet that whenyou first heard questions were multiple choice you, like me, thought this couldn't be easier :blink

    I was thinking more about this after I posted, and I've decided that B, even though theoretically possible, is actually completely impractical. You can have w2k installed on a dynamic volume, but not directly. You would have to have an OS on a basic volume, then setup another disk and make it dynamic, then you could install w2k on it. so, possible, but highly impractical.


    Therefore look at your other option in the choice, Peter - should be fairly straight-forward from there ...:)


    EDIT: Dammit, I'm thinking too much about this now :oops: Cancel the above (it's correct, but all the same...) . As long as you have unallocated space on your disk, an ordinary installation of w2k can create a partition on there, no probs.

    In summary - that is a crap question, badly written !!! :D
