I have a USB stick that was formatted to FAT under WinXP. I can see it
in OS/2 and I can copy something onto it but I am not able neither to
delete nor to create a partition on it, let alone a volume. LVMGUI
always tells me that "free memory cannot be used" or something like
that. I tried primary,logical partition, at start of free space, at end
of free space.
If I try to create an LVM volume, I get the error "this partition could
not be created from free memory".
I want to create an LVM volume on the USB stick so that I can format it
to JFS. What do I have to do ? Or does WinXP format the USB stick as a
large floppy (no partitions) ?
