I was attempting to format drive 0 on my primary SCSI chain with Partition Magic. When I excute the step I get a error #105. The machine was installed with Linux when I started. The drive is an 18.1 IBM . The machine is a HP LC3 dual P-III 500 server. I am going to install WinNT 4.0 , so I am trying to format to NTSF.
Any ideas ??

Partition Magic Error 105

#105 Partition starts on wrong boundary
#106 Partition doesn't start with sector one
The hard-disk partition table contains erroneous values. PartitionMagic expects partitions to begin and end on the correct cylinder boundaries. If they do not, the disk may be partially corrupted. In this circumstance, if PartitionMagic were to make any modifications it might cause the loss of data. Therefore, PartitionMagic refuses to recognize any of the hard disk's partitions.

To resolve this problem, see the instructions in Resolving partition table errors

If there is nothing on the drive you want to keep I'd just zero it out.
