I am in trouble and getting the following error message trying to open PartitonMagic again. What does the error message describe? I have tried to reboot the computer to take effect but the same problem exists. How can I get the resolution to fix this issue ASAP? What should I do now? Any suggestion would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
Init failed: Error117.
Partitlon’s drive letter cannot be identified
Partitlon drive letter identification error
Hey Mr. Nelson,
The PartitionMagic is very likely to come up with this problem when
1. A driver on your system has changed the drive letters from their defaults, or,
2. Your partition might not be having serial number, or,
3. When you are running PartitionMagic under Windows 7 or Vista or server editions of XP, NT, etc.
The solution -> Run PartitionMagic using DOS or from MS-DOS mode (in
Windows 95 or Windows 98). However, we recommend you run it in DOS. This way it does not need to be able to find the drive letter for each partition.
So , if this is the only error you are getting then PM will run successfully after you try the above.
May I suggest you to use GParted Live CD for disk modification purposes.
