Partition Magic v8/ Bios

  Granddad Ray 10:36 15 Sep 2004

I would like to disable the virus or boot-sector protection as recommended by Jeffers22 but I have absolutely no idea how to do it. As a computer ignoramus, I am nervous of messing about with bios settings but would certainly do so if some kind person would let me have step-by-step guidance. (Tried Fruit Bat /\0/\’s suggestion but it made no difference)

Have a look in the BIOS settings and see if there is one that says "allow boot virus scanning" or something similar. If so, disable this and save the change as you exit.

I posted the way to do this yesterday to an identically headed (and with identical text) thread.
