Hello, I've a packardbell PC witha 250GB disk. I've re-installed using the recovery CD all the system following issues. Then installed DDS 9 to create partition. In the first step, there was a main NTFS partition of nearly all disk space and 7GB in a non allocated space. I think this correspond to space used by the recovery part were data is taken to create packardbell recovery CD. So I create 3 partition, the system reboot, partions are created, all is fine at this step except that going back to DDS 9 I cannot see anymore the 7GB of free space despite having asked to take free space only from master C: partition. Then I've installed a few softwares including norton antivirus corporate (compagny mandatory), used packardbell add/remove tool to remove some packardbell soft that I don't need (skype, word 2002, etc). Then I've tried to extend one existing partition, all went fine, the system rebooted, DDS9 started his tasks and then I've had a long list of blank lines, system rebooted again DDS9 finalizing and then XP screen. Looking at my drive setup nothing has changed...retried a lot of time with no result. Tried to install partition magic, no success, error 117. Tried to log on the DDS9 recovery CD and it says there was an error with boot sector and stops... At this point I've a system that works but cannot use DDS9 anymore to perform any resizing as nothing is done and no error messages detected. Have run scandisk on all drives and nothing found. As anyone any idea ?, since 2 weeks I'm fighting with this, my goal was to have 2 install of XP home edition (one for work, the other one for childrens), have used OS selector, copied XP SP2 (this create bootwiz folder), and have had no issue, all was working well except that DDS9 was not able to perform any operation. So have reformated re-installed all the system and I'm now in the situation described upper... The problem doesn't come from OS selector... Thanks for your help David, sorry for my english I'm french.
