    I am attempting to create a liveview VM for a drive with 2 partitions.  LiveView fails to create the VM.  The error received is "Could not auto-detect OS for launch".

    Is there a way that Liveview can be used to resolve this problem?

      Hi,

      Live View should find the bootable partition on a multi-partition image.

      We'll need a few more details to help you.

      - What is target OS?
      - Can you describe the partition layout, including which have the bootable flag set?
      - What is the format of the disk image and how was it made?
      - Can you post or e-mail the contents of the MostRecentRun.log in the Live View program directory?

      Thanks,
      Matthew

      The target OS is Windows 2000.  I believe that the hard drive came from a laptop computer.  30 GB 14 GB each of the 2 partitions.  The first one is where the OS is located.
