Partition Magic conflicts


I recently purchased PartitionMagic 8.0 and after reading the manual I see that my sound card might create a conflict. It mentions that the dos drivers for my SoundBlaster Live sound card may conflict with Partition Magic operations that require going into boot mode. They recommend that I unload the SoundBlaster drivers by remarking them in my config.sys and autoexec.bat files, until I have finished using PartitionMagic. Could you please instruct me? Do I go into msconfig? Went out on Symantec site but did not find any information there. Sure would appreciate your help.

I would recommend that you make a back up copy of your sound blaster driver if you don't have the original then remove the program until after you've partitioned your drive then reinstall the soundblaster drivers; to remove the program

Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel

Click Add New Programs, and then click Windows Update

Follow the instructions to locate and add new Windows features, system updates, and device drivers


To open Add or Remove Programs, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs
