What doesn't PM8 like my partition? Errors 107 and 108

How do I solve Partition Magic errors 107 and 108:? Everything works
fine when I run winME, but I can't add a second partition for win2000.
I can't even fully display the current partition using Partition Magic
8.

It says the errors are: " #107 Partition begins after end of disk
This error can occur if a partition erroneously extends beyond the
physical end of the hard disk. This may happen if the hard disk has
been used on a different computer or with a different hard-disk
controller or if BIOS settings have been changed. Be advised that the
physical geometry of the hard disk may differ from the logical
geometry assigned to the hard disk by the operating system.

#108 Partition doesn't end at end of cylinder
The hard-disk partition table contains erroneous values.
PartitionMagic expects partitions to begin and end on the correct
cylinder boundaries. If they do not, the disk may be partially
corrupted. In this circumstance, if PartitionMagic were to make any
modifications it might cause the loss of data. Therefore,
PartitionMagic refuses to recognize any of the hard disk's partitions.
To resolve this problem, see the instructions in Resolving partition
table errors."

I wanted to replace the bad HDD in my old IBM Thinkpad 600E laptop,
which was 4GB, with 10GB, but I ended up with 40GB.

So I made the WinME partition 10GB. Hey, why not! And after a little
help from you guys, WinME was (and is) working fine, as well as it can
since so many programs don't work with it anymore.

So I planned to install win2000 in another partition. WinME Fdisk
wouldn't make another partition (said there was no room on the disk) ,
nor would the freeware on Hirens' Boot CD: Smart FDisk, Extended
FDisk, Parted whatever, etc.

So I dug out Partition Magic 8 and booted from it, then installed it.

Then I ran Partiinfo.exe and it said (I think I aligned the columns
correctly.)

How do I solve Partition Magic errors 107 and 108:? Everything works

Darn, it's 108 and 109! Not 107. Very sorry
fine when I run winME, but I can't add a second partition for win2000.
I can't even fully display the current partition using Partition Magic
8.

It says the errors are:
"#109 Partition ends after end of disk
This error can occur if a partition erroneously extends beyond the
physical end of the hard disk. This may happen if the hard disk has
been used on a different computer or with a different hard-disk
controller or if BIOS settings have been changed. Be advised that the
physical geometry of the hard disk may differ from the logical
geometry assigned to the hard disk by the operating system.
