    I purchased and downloaded DiskDirector Suite 10 last night. I also own previous Partition 8.0.

    I wanted to split my c: drive, so I went into split and when restarted computer is just sitting at blank screen with cursor blinking at top left. I did not creat a Rescue disk but had one from a previous setup and tried to boot with it but it will not recognize the drive with my backup image.

    I tried to use xp disk but it will not recognize my drive with my o/s on it. The same with the bootcfg tool, it will not recognize my hard drive with the o/s on it, says there are not boot directions.

    Can you see and log onto your XP partition from the XP install CD?

    I'm a little unclear, what or whose rescue disk do you have.

    When DD10 was working, did you 'commit' the changes and then reboot? I know nothing is supposed to happen until you commit - but you never know.

    It sounds like the MFT maybe zapped. Er meant MBR - so many mmmm'sss
