Yes, we are aware that the latest update that we sent out still has
issues with the Win Extended partitions.  We will be releasing an
update with this fix early next week.

What's the deal with this bug? I've had this problem for a long time and am
unable to upgrade to 6.1!

Comment 4 Jay Turner 2000-02-22 13:46:59 UTC
This issue is resolved in the latest installer (available in beta).
