"Official Complaint for Partition Boot Manager 1.08(PBM)"

January 26, 2009  |  By erkansaner

 |  Version: Partition Boot Manager 1.08

Pros

Boot with PBM, installation asks for space from initial part of partition and to get it you confirm, and delete the partition and MBR. but then it asks for a serial and if you dont have, you quit, impossible to boot your computer again.

Cons

Can get rid of the damage caused by this software by partition magic (PM). PM isn't a boot manager but at least sets some partitions active, deletes the redundant data that Partition Boot Manager had put instead of your previous partition and mbr.

Summary

You boot pc with PBM diskette, installation asks for some space from the beginning part of a partition and to get this, asks for your confirmation, and deletes the partition and MBR. but then it asks for a serial and if you don't have you have to quit. After this you have nothing to boot your computer. Previoues MBR is gone, no operating system can boot at all. If you uninstall this nothing is restored.

Summary: User is at no point informed about the fact that he/she needs a trial serial, and if he quits after this serial step, user can not boot its system again; in most of the cases
