get boot magic by powerquest




My copy of partition magic has boot magic included... of course it is four versions out of date, so the may have split te products by now.

have you tried "unhide" on your windows partition? (ie// adding this line in linux "grub.conf" after the title line of Windows boot ->
unhide (hd0,0)

Alternative: try booting a windows cd & running fixmbr
or
fdisk /mbr - windows boot floppy

...these are the only solutions i found to your problem...  hopefully it helps at least a little bit  :crazy:
