PM5 Vs. SC200

Use Partition Magic to hide your current active partition, create a new primary partition to install NT.

Install NT
Install SC2000

Partition Magic vs System Commander

by CharlesLloyd In reply to PM5 Vs. SC200

I have used both but like Partition Magic best. It allows moving partitions easily. I have used it with DOS, W95, W98, NT 4.0 so far and it's great. But note, Partition Magic seems to operate best from a DOS partition OR it can be run from a diskette which gives great flexibility. I installed on a 20 Gb HD running W98, then moved the partition so that first 2 Gb was open, then installed NT 4.0 there. Also allows converting DOS to NTFS for NT.
