Well, I'd say create those disks from a friends computer and go from there. It looks very strange because of the filesystem section from fdisk -l is saying part magic...

Once you have those disks, it'll probably all work out.

Cool

Some people are idiots. I guess this would be fine if you were able to boot into winbloze... but this programs claims to recover crap for you, but is a winbloze setup.exe file! http://download.com.com/redir?pid=67...cnet%2Fgdb.zip

I'm trying to find a site with those disk images on em...

Thanks, but really since PM seems to be desguising your fat32 partition as it's own proprietary filesystem, I think you are going to have to use it's own tools to recover it. If this were fat32 or ntfs we'd be done by now

Stupid PM...

Alright buddy, I gotta go get some work done really quick before my relief shows up. Good Luck! I think once you get those partition magic recovery floppy disks everything will fall into place easily.

Cool

Well if you do put winme or 98 on there, then you could put pm back on, and make those disks.

Work here is a joke sometime ya know. I just did 12 hours worth of work, and in 10 minutes

Cool

If you have access to a windows box you can put the PM cd in and create the floppies without installing the PM program on windows.I never install the PM program to the hdd-I just run the create floppies thing from the cd.HTH

lynch you think you could upload the files on the pm c.d to make the floppies, saves time and hassle for me??? Only if you can of course, like maybe send them to me through e-mail or something....

just a suggestion....
