Check the Documentation that should be on your installation?


#105 Partition starts on wrong boundary


The hard-disk partition table contains erroneous values. PartitionMagic expects

partitions to begin and end on the correct cylinder boundaries. If they do not, the

disk may be partially corrupted. In this circumstance, if PartitionMagic were to

make any modifications it might cause the loss of data. Therefore, PartitionMagic

refuses to recognize any of the hard disk’s partitions. To resolve this problem, see

the instructions in “Resolving Partition Table Errors” on page 126.

Sorry I can't help you with what that means or how to deal with it but it does refer you to the documentation page 126 (That's PM8 that I have)

Hi ,

Could you provide the partition details, i.e. the number of partitions on the drive

Does the hard drive contain Operating System?

if yes, are you able to boot the hard drive?

if no, see if there is a possibility that the hardrive could be fix on a working computer as a second harddrive?

Thanks for trying to help but I see the original post goes back almost 2 months and there was no reply to my message to him a couple of days later.
