Partition Magic 7 didn't finish the task-
Posted on 2003-03-02
I run WinXP-h on a homebrew i850 overclocked P4-2.0A. After installing a new HDD -- the estimable WD600JB, (cloned it from a Barracuda-iv)-- I decided to resize partitions and place main page file off of primary. I used Powerquest's PM7.
I can forgive that *none* of the changes I thought I'd implemented with PM7 appeared after reboot, but now with each warm or cold boot just before the WinXP-h desktop comes up I am greeted with error "xmnt2001 program not found... skipping autocheck". WinXP seems to be fine aside from this 3 second error message- but I've been too uneasy to run a scandisk ever since (3 days).
I made PM rescue floppys (as well as a System Restore point ) prior to the PM 7 activity.
Are the PM7 operations I wanted executed easily salvageable or should I cut my losses and undo whatever was begun?
(IF I am advised to try to undo the PM7 operations, I *do* have PM Rescue Floppies as well as the WinXP Restore Point I made.)
