    To make a long story short > I was trying to copy my laptop HDD and then install dual boot on the new HDD but gave up after I concluded my USB external enclosure only supported 128GB and not the 250GB that I needed (New external eclosure on order to solve this problem).

    But somehow when I now boot up with my original HDD I get the error

    Error finding BTMAGIC.IMG
    Run BootMagic install
    Press a key
    (I press a key)

    And everthing is ok - WXP loads correctly so that good.

    BUT >> the question is how do I now get rid of this error. I don't want a dual boot on this HDD so I don't want to install bootmagic.
    ANother question I could use help with is Partition Magic makes a rescue floppy but I don't have a floppy disk on my Laptop how do you get around this ?
