    I just got Partition Manager Personal 10.0 and it works great from within Windows. I managed to screw up my Windows partition (C), and needed to fix it by formatting it. I booted the CD with that intention and naming the partition "C". After booting I did not see the Partition Manager interface that I expected. It did not show the drives and the partitions like the classic or personal view in Windows and I couldn't find any way to get to a place where I could do what I needed. Am I missing something?

    Hi oco,

    Boot the cd, select Normal Mode.

    At the next window, press Shift+Ctrl+Alt+Backspace together.

    The main Interface should appear.

    Hope it helps.
