    I had a free version of PE 7 from a computer magasine and it worked fine
    except when it got to the point of deleting the free space on the harddisk,
    it crashed and needed to be physically reset.
    So I bought the version 9, it did the same (even when I tried several
    alternative methods of deleting, overwriting). After I'd tried several
    times to run the system cleanup option with no success it started to crash
    with just when I started PE. So I uninstalled it. the computer then crashed
    yet again, and when I restarted XP would not boot. So I put the Ultimate
    Windows Boot CD (UBCD4Win) in the drive and from the (I don't know the
    correct word in English, its a command line interface to resolve boot
    problems), anyway it has CHKDSK, and ran CHKDSK C: /R.
    I rebooted and everything has been fine since (without PE).
    Is it possible that PE has problems with a SATA disk? Does anyone else
    have a similiar problem with a SATA disk?
    I'm not going to reinstall PE till I know the problem has been fixed.
