PartitionMagic Trouble

By morpheus

  1. I recently installed Linux as a dualboot system on my machine. I partitioned the space for Linux using Partition Magic 8.0. When I completed the Linux installation and I went back to Windows to open PartitionMagic, I got the following error message:

    Init 117

    Partition's drive letter cannot be identified

    What does this mean? How do I fix it?

    More info required

    Please be more precise about when the error message appears ?

    prevents you from booting into windows?
    after Windows starts but when using explorer?
    on starting Partition Magic in Windows?

    int,, probably means you are booting to the linux OS??
    when you made partition did you give it a drive letter?
    you should go back boot to windows
    can you see the partiton??
    drive letter??
    does partiton magic have a boot manager
    does sound like corrupt linux boot loader
