tried to creat a partiton for the 64 bit os on this laptop.

because it's brand new, I didn't create a boot dsk, but I do have an xp cd.

long story short, won't boot...with the cd in the drive, I get the "press any key" to boot to cd, but then nothing

anyone have suggestions or links for me?

I use Partition Expert from Acronis. There are to many probs with PM .. As for your cd not booting that could be because the cd is damaged. Was ita copied cd ??


Debiant by way of Ubuntu
PM has been good for me - but you do need to be careful how you use it - not too many changes in one "batch" is the rule I think.

Sounds like baad luck here Perris - all sorted now?

Yea PM is a finiky little b!t@h but generally works great. On a side note though you have to be REALLY Carefull if you mess with the OS partition.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
