Leonard is right folks, the "Prepare a new OS" did exactly the same
thing to another machine I had and I had the "pleasure" of rebuilding
all of the operating systems on it.
"Prepare a new OS" is part of the "Deluxe" part of System Commander
Deluxe, and I believe it is referred to as "Partition Commander".
"Partition Commander" seems to write a partition table that is somehow
incorrectly linked according to existing agreed upon standards. This
may cause an effect of simply not being able to use another partition
editor, to losing access to entire partitions.
The "System Commander" portion of the product, which only selects
operating systems for boot, has worked well for me for years, and
that portion I recommend.
Having heard Leonard's identical tale of woe to mine with regards
to the "Partition Commander" portion, I would strongly caution others
to avoid that component of this product as "Not quite ready for
prime time". Instead, use an established partition editor and
management tool such as Partition Magic 4.
Oh, before I close this, I should point out that System Commander
Deluxe's "Partition Commander", specifically the command "Prepare a new
OS" didn't ask for verification before it started making partition
table changes and screwing up my partitions. This was *very* sloppy
research and/or implementation in my opinion.
