Shall I try and boot from it. As I say, the only place it could be is on the 81GB partition marked as Free Space.

Delete that other 'new' partition first.

Ok. How do I make it not active? It's the only partition showing as active on that disk.

Now try the one-time boot menu to see if the Linux HDD will boot on it's own.

Hmmn. same as last night. The F12 one time boot menu comes up but I cannot move the selection with my arrows keys. It shows Floppy at the top highlighted then Hard Drive then LST120 then Hard Drive and several other option but I cannot make a selection. This is very worrying.
