Partition Magic 8

Created: 16 Sep 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 1 comment

One of my client's machines needed a new hard drive, so I used Partition Magic 8 to copy the information over.  The process worked fine until I got this massage:

PartitionMagic (xmnt2002.exe)
Paritionmagic is unable to read the batch file. Verify that the System32 directory is not compressed or corrupt.
Press Any Key to Continue

One suggestion I read was to assign a different drive letter, but how can I do that if I can't boot the system?!! 

I have tried rewriting the boot sector but that didn't work.

Any suggestions?
