As you know, a MBR allows 4 primary partition slots. Send me flowers/money. (PS. all is fixed.

Is it possible to delete the virtual partition using a partitioning app? Navigate to the Ghost folder. I created two partitions on the hard drive. The MBR may be fragmented on my computer.

Can anyone shed some light on where/how Ghost saves C: partition info, and how to restore that previous status? If I choose the "Return to Windows" option, nothing happens. create a diskette and run the disk at bootup.

Welcome, Guest. http://recupsoft.com/stuck-in/stuck-in-16-colors.html change my bios to boot from the usb drive. To correct this you can use GhReboot. If I'm wrong someone will come along and correct me.

I booted to the fdisk floppy and deleted the virtual partition with it. check my blog Been working on this problem for the last 5 hours or so.

It restarted in PC-DOS to perform the operation, but it froze while loading the Ghost program. It went to reboot. Every KB article that starts with service1.symantec is getting redirected to Nathan the worthless robot.

Usually that is all I have to do to get back into windows.

i have some Logik cdrw from pcworld and they are ok, been rewritten to plenty of times and still working fine.good luck keith-236785 15:10 03 Aug 05 forgot to say, Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."

Deliver me from Swedish furniture! If you don't boot into XP, do step #2 and go to: 6a. I am currently using 2 optical drives and 2 ata drives on the main controller, 1 160 GB SATA drive, and 2 80 GB ATA drives on the promise raid controller. news go to c: drive (where the virtual drive is) 3.

with step 4 and 5, if the computer stops responding, try the /i option, ie. 4. >gdisk 1 /act /p:1 /i 5. >gdisk 1 /del /p:2 /i hope this helps … Log in to Reply bhoch on August 26, 2005 at 5:10 pm said: Dude, Alan gets hero of the month, but I get squat? Suggestions? Disagree?

The Ghost GUI would freeze with an hour glass. I've tried to execute GDISK.EXE also to manually restore the Windows partition and make it active, but it does the same thing with the cursor.

The time now is 05:46 PM. remove any cd or floppy disk then reboot.
