WANTED TO UPGRADE WINDOWS 2000 PRO TO XP PRO
Decided to copy my hard disk to another drive first, so i could go
back to win2000 if XP did not work out.
I cloned my 20gb drive to a 10gb hard Drive using partition magic.
No problems there, but obviously had to resize the 20gb to 10gb
before i cloned.
Using PMAGIC V5.1 (2000 version)
After XP was up and working, (some minor problems, had to remove PCanywhere and a few other progs.) I wanted to re-boot
to the partition magic floppy disks, and re-size the 10gb partition
up to the full driver capacity (20gb) - NTFS

the following errors reported and won't re-size the partition.

1516 - partition improperly demounted
1633 - non-directory lack data , file 9
1527 - bad update sequence number (many times)

too many errors - process halted

I have re-started XP, closed all files, deleted incident logs etc

1516 error is supposed to be :
The partition dirty flag is set in a restart record in the journal file. This error may have been caused by a power failure or system crash while the Windows NT operating system was writing the partition. Reboot Windows NT and execute CHKDSK/F to repair the damage.
error 1527 is supposed to be :
A buffer contains mismatched update sequence numbers. This error may have been caused by a power failure or system crash while the Windows NT operating system was writing the partition. Reboot Windows NT and execute CHKDSK/F to repair the damage

I have run chkdsk from within XP, which reboots and runs chkdsk in dos mode.
does not fix the problem - anybody got any clues ?
