I guess I'm backward in that I have 2 primary partitons and want both to be unhidden.  I created an 8GB partition for XP and the remaining 32GB was partitioned as a primary also for advancecd.  I used partition magic to do the partitioning, and bootmagic to boot to either one.  The problem is when I boot to XP, the second partition is hidden.  Partiton magic shows it hidden and allows me to unhide it, so it claims.  It boots, says partition unhidden, but when I get to XP, its hidden again.

As I understand it, bootmagic (I have 7.0) can hide partitons too.  But I have yet to see any obvious way to do, or undo this.

So my question is....How to I get both partitions to stay unhidden?
