I just got a new HD and I want to create partitions but I'm having trouble using Partition Magic 8.0 (which I've used before without a problem on my old HD).
After setting the logical partitions, assigning labels, and applying, the system re-boots, as it's suppossed to, but the new partitions are not there. So I go back into P.M. and the partitions are still listed but, the drive letters have been replaced by asteriks. I have set these as logical and they are listed as such.
I did a format and re-loaded Win Xp...still have this problem. Also, I can't even set partitions in Disk Management. I think the fact that I can't set partitions in Disk Management might be tipping us off about the problem.
