I installed partition Magic 8.0 and Boot magic without problems. However, I then disabled Boot Magic thinking that's what I should do. I installed Linux. Now can't get BM back. Trying to open Boot Magic gives me a message-
"Setup cannot find the location of where Boot Magic was originally installed. Make sure the volume Boot Magic is installed on or is visible, and assigned the same drive letter as at the time of install."
I probably muddied the problem more by going to partition Magic and deleting the "E" drive partition where BM was shown, thinking this would delete BM & let me reinstall it. What do I do now?
I think if I could uninstall and reinstall Boot magic, I'd be OK, but remove doesn't work from add/remove or Add Remove Pro because they can't find Boot Magic either. I also removed and reinstalled Partiton Magic, but nothing changed. I'm waiting for a response from the BM folks, but no response yet.
I see that when I used Partition Magic, I set up 4 primary partitions-
Swap Space2(*) Linux Swap,
(*) unallocated (this is where BM was/is?
local disc (C
local disc (*) Linux Ext2
Did I also goof when I set those up- using all primaries?
I've got XP Home on a Dell 4500S. Any ideas?
Also, until I resolve this dual boot problem, can I access Linux from the rescue disc I made, then get to XP w/F12 at start up?
