BOOTPART-DOS Program-problem

By i_need_answers
Oct 24, 2005
  1. Hello,
    I am trying to install Linux onto my Microsoft MBR..... I've installed the Linux OS and a website I read recommended using a program called BOOTPART....I downloaded and click the .exe file but it opens and closes in like 1 second.
    Anyone know how to keep it open?
    Heres the website I read.... See what you think.

    Run bootpart from a Cmd session.

    Thanks but can you explain exactly how to do that?
    I've gone to run and then typed cmd before but when I get the command prompt and type Bootpart nothing happens.... Do I need to try to type bootpart.exe??
    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    Where did you save the bootpart.exe file? You have to be in the same directory in CMD.
