I am surprised that you are seeing the standard menu. I remember from
Partition Magic that it had its own. I haven't used a boot manager in four
or five years, though, so what do I know.
In reading page 93 of the Disk Director 10 manual it is not clear to me that
the option to hide an OS hides operating systems from each other. It looks
like it is an option to remove an entry from the menu for some other reason,
such as hiding from other users, etc. Can you check this out?
