Bootmanager with Installation in the master boot record:

 

Problem:

The harddisk partitioner does not recognize the bootmanager. It thus cannot handle the "hidden" partitions correctly.

 

Solution:

Does not exist: You should utilize the harddisk partitioner PartitionStar if you have installed a bootmanager in the master boot record! (Exception: The bootmanager BootStar.)

 

 

Antivirus Programs:

 

Problem:

Warning after which a program tries to change the master boot record. This is most likely a virus.

 

Solution:

This might be a message from an antivirus program: The harddisk partitioner PartitionStar modifies the master boot record. That is the reason why some antivirus programs erroneously report this as a virus.

 

 

Norton AntiVirus:

 

Problem:

Norton AntiVirus reports a "Bloodhound.Boot" warning for the emergency disk.

 

Solution:

Not required: This message is just a warning about a potential virus and does not mean an actual virus has been detected.
