Partition Magic Init Error 100

This happens on the HDD in question as well as my other drives. Apparently, when PM was starting up, it recognized the RAID card but was unable to find a partition table for it, since I only have one drive in my system. when i triied to do it, my computer restarted and gave me error code 100, which is a problem with the MBR.

But it seems like you have already found it then and that it is the external. It may be able to handle the condition that Partition Magic 6 can't.Personally, I'd evacuate all data off the drive and clean install.Getting a partition table error would cause me concern. The other Promise card has three drives that pretty much act only as storage. 215451[/snapback] You mentioned above that the bad drive has no data on it?

Dec 21, 2004 #1 Vigilante TechSpot Paladin Posts: 1,666 Partition Magic is really good, I trust it. The drive has no data on it. thanks. The stop codes bother me the most as I'm afraid to open files that I'd really be upset if they were to be corrupted because of a stop error.

If parts of the file system have become corrupt so that files are absent or damaged one can call this a software problem. Unless you have been able to boot to an external drive then just I don't follow this. I have the complete installation disk with SP2 slipstreamed onto it. 6 hard disks. The other variable is, do you have any "Go-Back" software?

I do not intend to boot from the external and therefore opted to save the search time and not enable USB. In order to see it, its USB2 setting may or may not need to be enabled; both settings should be tried if there is a problem with recognition. I cannot see the drive in either Windows Explorer, Partition Magic or BiNG. useful source When I built my system, I installed the RAID controller card just so it wouldn't get lost.

From your comments: what I can do is: uninstall any recently added software,run without the ZIP drive,disconnect the 280Gig/COX drive,reinstall drivers ????????,maybe reinstall heavily used programs???,run programs that I remember causing Then tryed on a smaller HD, 17.2 just the same result. Can someone please tell if the error message is bogus or if there is really something wrong some place and what software should be used to fix the problem.

Should I just take it out and put it into another computer and Fdisk it, then reinstall it.

I most recently added a post on this thread that I turned the drive off during a CHKDSK run causing more problems. That's what the PM8 manual urges and I agree. Init failed error > 100 Partition Table is bad. > > I have run chkdsk under DOS mode on each of my drives and no errors > were reported.
