Having installed ATI and created an image on DVD+RW several days ago, I decided to create a "Secure Zone" on my nearly empty 120gig hard drive before installing some new software. I started up ATI, entered the "Secure Zone" management, and selected an 8 GB partition to be created. After this operation had concluded, I pressed the Reboot Button and watched in horror as my system first POSTed, then went directly to a Blank Screen with flashing cursor in the upper left hand corner... After several reboot-attempts, I set my BIOS to boot from my CD/DVR and booted from the Win98SE(final) installation CD and found that Drive C: had been totally obliterated: no valid drive, etc., etc. just as in This Thread http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=69483&highlight=flashing cursor (and many others) here in this forum. I used the Acronis Boot-CD to restore my image from DVD+RW, and now must reinstall a few pieces of software I had installed since first creating the image. It's quite apparent that the "Secure Zone" is, for many users, a very UNsecure Zone and should be avoided like the hazard it truly is. C'mon guys: this is shoddy design and development; you can do better than this!
