Cannot remove Boot Magic 7 from Windows XP Pro
Posted on 2006-07-12
Would anyone know why Boot Magic 7 is difficult to remove from Windows XP? I created a fat32 partition to install, then decided I was'nt going to use it after all, and then tried to remove. It said that the partition was hidden. I used Partiion Magic to "unhide" the partition but although it processed it and rebooted when I checked it was still hidden. Is it because it is a primary drive? Can I make it a logical and still boot?
I tried to delete the fat32 partition, but found I had to boot with my xp disk. It said mbr corrupt. So I put the partition back on and reinstalled Boot Magic 7 so I wouldn't have to use the xp floppy to boot.
Obviously I'm doing something wrong, but I want this thing off my computer! It takes forever to boot with it on.
