I can't remember why it is this way, but I too, when through alot of pain trying to silently install PQ Magic. this works.

Setup.exe -s

and take the following ISS file and modify it where I have place asterisks.

Thank you very much. Your solution works perfectly. Could you please tell me about how to make these *.iss files? IThe MSFN Unattended guide seemed to tell it very briefly.

Do a clean install of the Partition Magic with the "-R" switch BUT pause right before you get the last message window that suggests/makes you reboot. search your Windows directory for "setup.iss" and copy this file to a safe place (copy it to the same directory in which the Partition Magic setup command is located. you're done.
