Problem with Partition Magic

  Dazwm 20:33 13 Jan 04

I am using partition magic to create another partition on my harddrive. I have done it before so I know how to do it, but for some reason it won't do it now. After rebooting a blue screen says partition magic tasks are complete but nothing has changed. Why is this? My OS Is XP Pro
and my HDD is 120GB

Have you tried running PM from the "Rescue Floppies" If not,try redoing the partitioning from them,as I had similar probs,which were resolved in this way.

Agree with Chegs. Much of what PM does is outside of the operating system so I only ever run it from the rescue floppies as this eliminates any conflicts with XP. If you run it from floppies the first floppy boots the PC into its own version of DR DOS and the second runs the program. To create the floppies you will need two and follow the instructions in the manual.

Good luck.
