I am trying to install PowerQuest Partition Magic 8.0 in Windows XP.
Every time I try to run the program it shows an error message
PowerQuest Partition Magic has detected an error 114..
When I click “yes” or “no” then I am getting another error message:
Init failed: error 117 Partition’s Drive Letter Cannot Be Identified
And after I click ok Nothing happens
How can I solve this problem?
Please take a look at this Screenshots.
PowerQuest PartitionMagic has detected an error 114 on the partition starting at sector 61432623 on disk 1.
This logical partition begins more than one head away from the extended partition.
To fix this error PowerQuest PartitionMagic can simply write a new EPBR record for this logical partition.

Partition Magic Problem Error 114 At Startup
Does you hard drive have a Linux partition?
Partition Magic Error 114 is, unfortunately, an undocumented error code (it's not in the Partition Magic manual nor is it in the online manual). Most instances of this error happen to people who dual-boot Windows and Linux.
The easiest solution is to download another partition manager. There are many partition managers out there that are free but are just as good as Partition Magic. One such partition manager is EASEUS Partition Master (http://www.partition-tool.com/).
But if you would rather keep using Partition Magic, what you have to do is to delete your Linux partition or your Linux swap partition. You'd still need another partition manager to delete the partition or you could load up your Linux Live CD and use its partitioning tool to delete the swap partition.
Hope this helps!
