"No Active Partition" message in Partittion Magic
I'm having a problem using Partition Magic on my XP machine.
I'm trying to take a 1 GIG hard drive and partition it to an approx 400Gig C Drive and a 600Gig second drive letter.
The idea is that it'd be easier to back up my C drive with just the operating system and important programs using Ghost if it didn't contain all sorts of other data that I can just store in another drive letter.
Anyway, in Partition Magic, I:
1. Resize C: to approx 400Gigs.
2. Allocate the unallocated "F" drive space (The remainder of the former c:)
3. Go to APPLY these changes, and
I get the warning that there is NO ACTIVE PARTITION, do I want to continue?????
I'm concerned about making my drive unbootable (And I have no floppy drive on this machine, so I can't use PM's TOOLS to make a bootable rescue disc (I'm using Partition Magic 8.05).
I'd appreciate any help you can give.
