      Hi Guys,

      I used a software ' DrvInfo Changer ' to change my extended partition (d:
      drive's) serial number.But unfortunately after I used this my d: drive
      became inaccesible in Windows 98. It is still accessible in DOS.

      I have an idea about parition table & other stuff so I used Ranish Partition
      Manager Version 2.38 Beta 1.91 & changed all the diff media types like
      0x0F,0x0B but nothing works. I even reinstalled windows.

      After 12 hours of pain Im turning towards U hoping U pple will help me. Pls
      help me save my 4 GB of data on my harddisk. Im inlcuding my hard disks
      partition table information snapshotted from Partition Manager.

      Any help in this regard is appreciated

      Thanking U in advance

      Regards,
      Palan

        try to run the scandisk or better yet, norton disk doctor
        maybe some vfat option is wrongly set, dos doesnt read it,
        but windows and norton does (and windows confuse himself)

        try to use again that program and try to revert or seek any strange
        thing

        you can always try to do one fdisk /MBR to reset the MBR of the drive
        but i think that the problem isnt from here...

        >Any help in this regard is appreciated

        isnt much but... 8)


        all data you sent seens OK, i didnt find any strange thing
        the only "wrong" thing is the linux swap...
        you should place it more close to the start of the disk
        linux swap (as partition 2 but in the begining of the drive), fat32 (as partition 1)
        then linux (as partition 3)
        if you dont want to take the fat32 from the begining of the disk, at least
        put fat32, linux swap, linux ext2

        the beginnig of the HD is faster than all other places
        the swap in linux would be faster... if you have alot memory, you will
        not see any diference, but if you have little mem, the speed is big some times
