To run PartitionMagic from rescue disk

  • When you boot your computer from the first rescue disk, PQMAGIC automatically runs. You must insert the second rescue disk when prompted.


    Before you run PartitionMagic from the rescue disks, you should:
    1. Turn off third-party disk caches.
    2. Deactivate/unload any TSR programs that access or modify partitions being changed.
    You cannot run PartitionMagic on a Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, or Windows Me machine that is in hibernation. To use the rescue disk or PartitionMagic for Windows, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Me must have been shut down normally.

    Rescue Disk Limitations
    The following features are unavailable when you run PartitionMagic from the rescue disks.
    1. Split partitions
    2. Secure erase of partitions
    3. Undo last change
    4. Wizards

    If you run out of space on the first rescue disk as a result of adding network, SCSI, or CD-ROM drivers to your boot sequence, you can delete the following files from the disk:, fdisk.exe, ptedit.exe, and partinfo.exe. We recommend that you delete the files in that order, freeing up only the space that you need to accommodate additional files. These files are included in the Utilities folder on the PartitionMagic CD where you can access them later, if necessary.

    If you use an international keyboard or character set, you will need to modify the AUTOEXE2.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files on the rescue disks. See Using International Keyboards for additional information. Checking an NTFS partition with the rescue disk version of PartitionMagic may take an unusually long time. Because PartitionMagic performs checks both before and after the move, copy, and resize operations, these operations may be slower with the rescue disk version of PartitionMagic than with the Windows version.
