Hi folks, I've just installed partition magic and tried to partition my hard drive prior to installing linux. It returns the following,"the selected disk contains one or more partitions which cannot be moved. To complete the task use operations menu rather than a wizard" But in the operations menu create partition is greyed out so can't be used. The machine is a Dell 1100 with a recovery partition, is this the problem? and if so can this be removed, i've a Ghost backup of the complete drive saved on a second drive so could presumably recover from this if it all goes horribly wrong! Thanks, and regards, yaesu.
