To change bootable primary partitions

  • 1. (Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT Workstation, or Windows 2000/XP Professional) Click Start > Programs > PowerQuest PartitionMagic 8.0 > PartitionMagic 8.0 Tools > PQBoot.
    (DOS) Go to a DOS prompt. Change to the directory containing PQBOOT.EXE or PQBOOTX.EXE, type PQBOOT or PQBOOTX, then press <Enter>.
    2. If you are using Windows, click Yes to continue.
    3. Type the ID number of the partition (shown in the first column) you want to make the bootable primary partition.
    4. Press <Enter>.
    PQBoot makes the partition active and reboots the computer. If you need to maintain multiple, visible primary partitions under Windows NT, you should run PQBoot with the /M switch.

    1. In step 1, under Windows, PQBoot32 will only run if PQVXD.VXD is in the same directory as PQBOOT32.EXE.
    2. In step 1, under DOS, you can run either PQBOOT or PQBOOTX.
    3. Use PQBOOT if you want a small, fast executable that will fit on a floppy disk that has limited free space. Be aware, however, that PQBOOT may not display volume labels correctly for FAT or FAT32 partitions and volume labels for NTFS partitions will not display at all.
    4. Use PQBOOTX if the executable file size and speed are not critical. PQBOOTX will display all volume labels in FAT, FAT32, and NTFS partitions.
