OSNews, Generic OSes Partition Logic is a graphical, easy-to-use partitioning and hard disk management tool for PCs, based on the alternative Visopsys OS. It can create, delete, reorder and move partitions, and modify their attributes, as well as doing things like copying entire hard disks. It boots from a single floppy or CD image. Version 0.57 (freshmeat announcement) has a number of tweaks and some important bug fixes. A change log is here, and downloads are here.

I do need a good alternative to Partition Magic and Microsoft's tools are usually to restrictive.

But this software doesn't support:
# Non MS-DOS/MBR-style partition tables (i.e. Sun, BSD, EFI/GPT)
# Formatting non-FAT filesystems.
# Filesystem resizing.

That's limited use if you're using NTFS on a dynamic disc configuration, for example. Not that I blame the people behind PartitionLogic or even PartitionMagic for MS's closed specs.

Perhaps you should report your system setup to them so the developers can fix this issue?

It runs in it's own OS, it won't boot into BartPE.

I like the idea of a partitioning tool and a disk cloning tool as part of the same program, loads ok on a pretty recent HP small form factor desktop (last of the parallel ATA models)

Parsix is a great livecd which has "GParted", a GTK libparted frontend. Does NTFS, FAT, ext2/3, JFS, ReiserFS etc.

http://www.parsix.org/html/index.php
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

I've used it plenty of times...great software.

Partition Logic did not detect the SATA disk in my box, only the IDE drives. I used DiskDrake to see how it worked, (OK), but Ranish Partition Manager gives you complete control over partitions, although you do have to use other install progs to format for other than plain EXT2 & VFAT.
