Cannot unhide partition after using Partition Magic 8.0?
Posted on 2006-07-12
I am using
2 Hard drives & Partition Magic 8.0 Boot Magic configuration to boot into each drive
My 1st drive 40GB indows XP Home as C drive NTFS with a small partition at end of drive formatted FAT32 for the Boot Magic configuration program.
My 2nd hard drive, 2.01GB, Windows 98 installed, also C drive.
Using Partition Magic 8.0 I made a new partition in front of Windows Xp Home but before the small FAT32 Partition. However I got a1513 error message that the partition cannot be allocated/created?
I found out Ineeeded to install the PQ 8.01 Patch to solve this problem I did this & made a small logical partition ntfs that worked. However I then made another larger NTFS Logical partition but i then recieved an error 1552 The requested FRS entry is unused(free) Now I cannot boot into Windows XP Home, only Windows 98.
I cheked Symantec & Icannot find error1552?
I used my PQ 8.0 Floppy drives but I cannot unhide the XP Home drive & no drive letters?
I asks for reboot to make changes but XP Home starts & a blue flash appears on screen & then pc goes back to restart & then to the Boot magic startup screen.
I installed PQ 8.0 to my Windows 98 Hard drive & it shows Windows XP as Disk 1 Windows XP Home (ntfs) 40GB Labelled as ?K? in question marks Why letter K?
How do I restart Windows xp home if I cannot unhide the partition & the drive letter has changed form C to ?K? with question marks?
I am worried I have lost the whole disk drive with my files & programs on?
