Grub and Partition Magic 8.0 disagree -- which is correct?
With WinXP already on the system and lots of space between the primary partition and the extended partition, I was able to install a 64bit linux on a second primary partition on disk 1.
And it put in Grub for dual booting. Fine.
Now when I am in WinXP my Partition Magic 8.0 starts with a menacing message :
Way back 10 years ago, I remember having a similar message and subsequently butchering everything. I wish to avoid this so :
on disk 1 the length of the data partition in the data table is incorrect.
CHS length 4209030 LBA 4208368. Shall I correct this?
what is the proper way to proceed? ignore Partition Magic? follow its suggestion? Upgrade Partion Magic?
Do the Linux and Windows Universes perceive partitions in different manners?
Thanks for any tips.
