PM 8.0 and 8.x , x being something above 0, and all previous version of PM is/are incompatble with using them in Vista!!! ( and probably Windows 7 too).
I know from experience that when you try to install PM 8.x in Vista, you are WARNED that it is not compatible with Vista - if you went ahead and installed it in Vista anyway, I don't know whether your problem can be fixed.
PM 8.0 was first released a long time ago before Vista existed, when XP was a new thing, and hasn't changed since 8.x was released shortly after that.
"i uninstalled it and restarted but it didn't work."
What do you mean by that?
Is Vista still working?
"i have right click on my cumpter then i click on Manager and then the Storage. It has shown me the 4 partitions and 2 were hidden among them."
That sounds like Vista is still working.
If the computer still had the original brand name software installation on it when you ran PM, one of the two partitions that are now hidden are probably supposed to be hidden!
NOTE that your original hard drive, if the computer still had the original brand name software installation on it when you ran PM, probably had two partitions, and it's quite common for the second partition on it to be hidden by the maker of the brand name system ! If you couldn't see that second partition in Windows before you tried PM, it's not supposed to be un-hidden!
If you haven't placed any data on the other partition that's hidden you made with PM yet, it has no data, and the one that was on the drive previously DOES have data on it (unless you deleted it's data contents).
PM 8.x hides all new Primary partitions it makes on a particular hard drive if there's already at least one non-hidden Primary partition on the drive by default. 2000 and later Windows operating systems and Vista can deal with more than one visible (non-hidden) Primary partition on a hard drive, so if you are using 2000 or up, you can make more than one Primary partition visible (un-hide it) with PM.
You MAY be able to fix your problem by....
- booting the computer with the PM CD, if you have it and it's bootable (the original CD is) . When you boot with the PM CD, it loads the Dos bootable version of PM.
Use it to un-hide the one primary partition you made with PM it has marked as hidden (which probably shows it does NOT have data on it in PM), that is NOT the one the hidden partition the drive originally had (which probably shows has it has data on it in PM, unless you deleted it's data contents).
- if you don't have the bootable PM CD, install PM again in Vista and try doing the same thing.
