    Wow, glad you didn't suceed in making that repair. You would have really been up said creek without a paddle.

    When Norton is installed it saves the current boot record during installation. Using a partitioning product like Partition Magic or System Commander will modify the partition table, making the information that Norton previously saved invalid.

    Allowing Norton to repair in this situation may leave the partition labeled as unformatted. Norton repair will leave the partition inaccessible. All data and OSes in that partition could be lost or corrupted beyond recovery.

    To get rid of the message, remove and reinstall Norton. This will update the saved information and should prevent further error messages from Norton.
