    Hi, Merry Christmas,
    I had to reinstall my linux os recently and used partition magic to
    repartition the drive to allow for a larger win partition.
    Now I have a none bootable drive and have to boot it using F11 at startup.
    I don't remember doing anything to it that would cause this. Partition
    magic says that it a bootable drive it's the first hdd although the senond
    one is an sata drive. It's the first one in the bios and it's jumpered as
    master(with noslave). Any ideas what I should do?
