    I wanted to try out FD-ISR after reading so much about it here. My partition scheme is somewhat wierd as a result of having had to reinstall XP after trying out Vista and the mess with bootloaders. I have 2 partitions on my main drive - C and D. C is the boot partition but D is the Windows paritition (they got switched).

    Now when I try to install Fd-ISr, I get the error above. Is there any way around this short of reformatting? (not an option, its a 250gb drive full of data).

    Don't you have a backup image of your partition C and D, before you did all this ?

    Couple of things. First, I suspect you might have to straighten out your disk. FDISR needs to be on the boot and system disk together. Also if your disk is that full you are going to have problems using FDISR.
