My new computer came preconfigured with Windows XP installed on a 120 gb hd with just one partition (C:), NTFS:( Now i want to use Partition Magic 7.0 to create a new partition where I can install Win98. I have 39.2 mb unallocated space on C: and 114 gb allocated to the rest of the partition. I've tried to use PM to creat a new primary partition on the drive, size 10 gb, but it doesn't work, PM tells me it can't create a new partition on drive 1 when I try to run the wizard.
I have tried to resize the partition in order to make room for the new partition but no matter how i set the slider (even at the default setting) PM tells me that "This partition crosses the 1024 cylinder boundrary and may not be bootable. Can somebody tell me how i can use PM the create a new FAT 32 partition without reformatting the whole drive I would be immensely grateful.
