Default PartitionMagic 8.0 - Error 626 - please help

My system is running Win98SE.

I have PowerQuest PartitionMagic 8.0 installed.

When I try to copy a partition,
I get the following error message:
"Error 626. Operation is to be performed on
a hard drive not visible from boot-mode."

This error message occurs when PM8 goes into
DOS to execute operations in batch mode.

Anyone know what's wrong?

Svend, where are you?

You can get some partitions not visible at the dos level
that are visible at the Win level because Win does its own
scan for drives and the partitions on them at boot time.

PM 8 is pretty dinosaury. Acronis True Image allows you to do
that sort of thing from what it calls a rescue CD which is a bootable
Linux CD which may well be able to see the partition fine.

Default PartitionMagic 8.0 - Error 626 - please help

I'm copying this to microsoft.public.win98.gen_discussion.

For future reference, for questions and issues that touch on windows 98,
I recommend you include that newsgroup, because it's pretty much the
only active win-98 group on usenet these days.

You might want to look at this:

I guess Norton bought / owns PowerQuest?

Are you cloning a partition from one drive to another?

I recommend you find something called "Hiren's boot disk" or boot cd.
It's on the internet in various locations. Easy to find and download.
It's a bootable CD that contains dozens of hard drive utilities and
programs. It will do exactly what you want.

And you might want to poke into the win-98 discussion forum on msfn.org
once in a while. Lots of good stuff happening there regarding win-98.

He's still running Windows 98 SE with an old PC. It should be fine.

Not necessarily, it does its own scan for drives and so partitions,
so what it can see isnt necessarily what DOS sees.

Um, yeah....where have you been for the past 7 years? Symantec bought
up Powerquest at the start of 2004. They killed Drive Image and
absorbed the Drive Image technology into Ghost. They took over
Partition Magic and then killed it. Another in a long list of quality
software either killed or emasculated by Symantec.

Svend, where are you?


What partition are you trying to copy? What drive is it on? Is it an
IDE drive, or is it a SCSI or USB drive? Where are you copying it to?

What happens if you try the copy operation using the Partition Magic
Rescue Disks instead of Windows-mode Partition Magic? Do the rescue
disks "see" the drives and partitions involved?

It's possible since you were running PM from Windows that another
application interfered or modified the disk.

It's also possible if it is an IDE disk, that you have it jumpered
incorrectly.

gparted is a very reasonable GNU replacement for partition
magic. Other then PM, it has never killed any drives for
me so far. With PM, my experience in mor ecomplex cnages is
2 out of 3 failed with the disk messed yup enough that a
fresh partitioning was needed.

So maybe Sumantec did the world a vavour.

I used PM4, PM5 and PM8, and never had any problems with it....except
the "Merge Partitions" feature that was introduced with PM5 and was
well-known to have issues, so I simply performed such operations in 2
steps instead of using that feature.

Yeah, I never trusted running other programs. Too risky IMO! Others and
I always used bootable DOS version without problems with old PCs and
their IDE/PATA HDDs.
