I Installed partition magic 8,i wanted to have w/98 on one part and xp on the other. Before I did this my operating system was w/98 upgraded to xp. Anyway I dont know if ive done things right,after i did things i restarted my computer,then when it boots up it asks me to install partition magic disc floppy 1,then it asks to install disc 2 and press any key. when i do this it says loading,then it comes up with bad command name or file,then the A:prompt sign appears do i have to type anything after this. How do i get my desktop back. Any body got any ideas.
hi, it all depends on what this means "Anyway I dont know if ive done things right,after i did things i restarted" did you create extra partitions and where on the drive were they created, can you remember if you created partitions in front of the current oprating system drive "C" or after. If you created a partition in front it could be that the "C" drive has changed to the new partition, making the older ex "C" partition now "D". it can all be remeded if there was no formatting involved. If you have done a swap "C" to "d" for example the partition magic disks will not install as they will not find a current "C" with an operating system boot sector.
