I plan to use the SATA to run windows, and then get Linux on the IDE. I've got all my important stuff backed up right now, so I don't care if I screw my computer up, so i'm messing around with some partitions, resizing and junk.
Anyway, this HDD was jsut one big 190gb partition, so I used GParted to resize it to 150gb.
It all worked fine, my computer boots up perfectly fine and all. BUT if I go and create a partition from the 40gb unused space, no matter what i'm getting an "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" error when trying to boot up. I can fix it by simply deleting the partition I just created.
I've tried using fdisk from my 98SE install disk (It says I need to make a primary dos partition to make an extended partition, but when I made a primary dos partition on my laptop, with the main partition already being NTFS, it screwed up the thing).
GParted - I get the Unmountable boot volume error.
Partition Logic - Same error.
