Am I allowed to mention Partition Magic on this forum? Back in 1998 I used it with great success, a friendly interface and not many wipe-outs if you were fairly competent. I skipped over winXP and have been doing all I need from win98. Finally decided to buy a new Vista Pavilion notebook. One of the first things I looked into was partitioning software and I was reading bad things about Partition Magic ever since Semantic bought them out. As far as I could tell they do not advertise support for Vista yet. Then I studied Acronis DD and read some good things, also saw thay had edited in a few statements that Vista is supported, so I bought it. I have had a very bad experience so far with DD and OSS. I know I need to get up to speed with XP and Vista operating system particulars and I hold out hope that one day (maybe the 2161 build) I will be able to tri boot win98\XP\Vista per Acronis's slogan "with confidence". Anyway, my question-- Has anyone heard of or had personal success using Partion Magic to dual boot including Vista. If I can't get DD working soon I might give that package a try too.
