Create a bootable cd of Partition Magic 8 from the download version?

Posted on 2004-10-30

Hi Everyone,

I've just bought the download version of Symantec's Partition Magic 8.05, and I'd like to know how to turn this into the bootable cd version that you can buy? The reason is that it can't lock the disk I'm trying to re-partition and other topics on this site suggest booting from the CD to do this,

Many Thanks

    Sorry, it didn't - that just makes a standard boot disk on a cd. I think I need a boot image of the cd (or something?), but I'm not sure I can get this anywhere as it will contain the copyrighted files for the program. The root directory of the files I downloaded from Symantec looks like:

    BTMagic (folder)
    DOCS (folder)
    RESCUEME (folder)
    Setup (folder)
    Readme.txt (file)

    I imagine that there must be more files on the root directory of the cd (the boot files at least!) Can anyone confirm/deny this?

    You beauty - that's spot on. Just wish I'd used Ranish instead of paying for a dos-based Partition Magic!
