I had Xandros on my computer & decided to remove it.
I used Partition Magic to delete the partitions & then remake them in Fat32.
This resulted in the formation of 146 partitions as covered in my previous post.

If I have to do it again I will remove the partition with Fdisk.

Reading this and your other thread I'm not sure I understand things. Did Xandros cause your problem (trashed your hard drive) or was the white knight after something else trashed it? Or both? ?:|

I now would never use Partition Magic to do anything with a Linux partition. I would use the Linux install CD and delete the partitions using that.

The Partition Magic caused the errors.

Depends what version you use... I tried PM7 and it killed all my partitions but I used version 8 to remove Xandros and had no problems!
