Mouse not working when running partition magic linux through vmware

I'm trying to expand a partition for a vmware image, so I boot into the bootable partition magic linux iso image. However once it boots up, the mouse is not funcitoning correctly, I can move the pointer around but it doesn't respond to mouse clicks. I updated vmware tools to make sure it was the latest. Using vmware workstation.

Try setting your OS type to Other -> DOS, then boot the CD.

Good Luck

If I'm not mistaken, partition magic uses gparted.

Haven't been able to reproduce it so I guess it's fixed.
