A friend's Compaq computer keeps failing to boot and reports invalid partition information.
I run FDISK and it shows a D:drive as primary dos partition of 7MB and a C:drive as primary dos partition of 6Gigs, I deleted the D:drive and all was fine for awhile then when he tried to boot up the next day it was back again. This problem seemed to appear after he installed Norton Utilities. I'm not sure if it is a problem with Norton Utilities or something that Compaq does and Norton just brought it out? I have never seen a "ghost partition" appear before. Have any of you seen this sort of thing happen or have any suggestions? Thanks

Some version of Norton Utilities does not work well with FAT32. Which version of Norton Utilities and Windows are being used?
I'm not sure what version of N.U. it is, I will check next time I go over there. He is running Win 95 with Fat32. Do you think N.U. could cause another partition to show up on its own? It also seems odd that the partition is also a primary and it is so small (7MB). I used to use N.U. and it seemed to cause more problems than it should.
Thanks for your input.
