Re: Unusual DMBOOT Problem
Hi Sparty -
I am no longer getting the dmboot error but, unfortunately, a lot of water has passed over the dam since 2005 and I have forgotten what I did to get rid of it. I thought that perhaps I had changed the dmboot start entry in my registry to 0, as mentioned in my 2005 message, but I just checked and it is still 0x4. Also, my physical disk #1 ("D") still has the dual personality (as shown in Disk Manager), so, I have no idea how I eliminated the error message.
If you can afford the time and effort, the best way perhaps is just to make a complete backup of the corresponding disk, delete the "missing dynamic offline" device shown in Disk Manager, reformat and remount the disk, and restore from the backup. Depending upon what's on that disk you might have to reinstall some apps.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help, and good luck.
