Part Magic caused stop error after merge

By Casemaker ·
Hi, I used PM Version 8.0 and W XP Home to merge my c and d drive. It told me to convert the cluster sixe of one or the other drive so they would be the same. I converted one of them from 4k to 2k. It completed the operation when applied. I then merged the d drive with the c drive. after the merge and reboot I am getting a windows stop error. A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps. Then it says to check for viruses and remove anty newly installed hdd or controllers.
Technical info Stop: 0x0000007b(0xfc938640,0xc000000e,0x00000000,0x00000000)
There is no virus and I did not change drives
Thanks

Part Magic caused stop error after merge

The HDD converted from FAT or NTFS to HPFS. XP doesn't support HPFS which is for a different operating system.

MSDOS determins FAT size on the # of clusters
If there are 4085 or fewer clusters, FAT12 is used
If there are 4086 or more clusters,FAT16 is used

The HDD's around 16MB to 127MB Geometrically
It's got a FAT16 system with 4086 Clusters at 2K

This may or has damage the drive. I'm sure that's why XP wass stopping you.

If geometry has been possibly altered it may not befixable? If it's a Western Digital, get an OnTrack Manager Disk, boot it up and see if you can reset the geometry of the drive.

Don't know about other software rescues for other drives.
