Same thing happened with me - Partition magic boot sequence to edit partition isnt compatible with x64 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"><br><br>
I however used this guide and found it too work just fine.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

1 Be sure you have two blank 1.44 MB floppy disks before you continue (three disks for double-byte languages).<br><br>
To create rescue disks from: Do this:<br>
PartitionMagic main window Click Tools > Create Rescue Disks.<br>
Microsoft Windows Click Start > Programs > Norton PartitionMagic 8.0 > Norton PartitionMagic 8.0 Tools > Create Rescue Diskettes.<br>
DOS Run MAKEDISK.BAT from the \\<language>\\DOS-OS2 folder on the PartitionMagic CD by typing MAKEDISK A: where A: is the drive letter for your floppy disk drive.You can also install the DOS version of PartitionMagic to your hard disk using this process. If you install to your hard disk, the PartitionMagic files (but not the system files) will be installed to a PQMAGIC directory at the root of the disk, and you will not need floppy disks.<br>
2 Insert a blank, formatted 1.44 MB disk into your 3.5-inch disk drive, then click OK.<br>
3 Follow the on-screen instructions to create the disk.</td>

When you boot your computer from the first rescue disk, PQMAGIC automatically runs. You must insert the second rescue disk when prompted.<br><br>
Preparation<br><br>
Before you run PartitionMagic from the rescue disks, you should:<br><br>
· Turn off third-party disk caches.<br>
· Deactivate/unload any TSR programs that access or modify partitions being changed.<br><br>
You cannot run PartitionMagic on a Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, or Windows Me machine that is in hibernation. To use the rescue disk or PartitionMagic for Windows, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Me must have been shut down normally.<br><br>
Rescue Disk Limitations<br><br>
The following features are unavailable when you run PartitionMagic from the rescue disks.<br><br>
· Split partitions<br>
· Secure erase of partitions<br>
· Undo last change<br>
· Wizards<br><br>
If you run out of space on the first rescue disk as a result of adding network, SCSI, or CD-ROM drivers to your boot sequence, you can delete the following files from the disk: chkdsk.com, fdisk.exe, ptedit.exe, and partinfo.exe. We recommend that you delete the files in that order, freeing up only the space that you need to accommodate additional files. These files are included in the Utilities folder on the PartitionMagic CD where you can access them later, if necessary.<br><br>
If you use an international keyboard or character set, you will need to modify the AUTOEXE2.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files on the rescue disks. See Using International Keyboards for additional information.<br>
Checking an NTFS partition with the rescue disk version of PartitionMagic may take an unusually long time. Because PartitionMagic performs checks both before and after the move, copy, and resize operations, these operations may be slower with the rescue disk version of PartitionMagic than with the Windows version.</td>

Good Luck and hope this helps <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">
