    I used Partition Commander to have two WinXP installations. After removing one partition and enlarging the second (one I wanted to keep), I cannot boot into XP anymore. Somehow I think it thinks it is drive I: instead of C: because CHKDSK said it was checking I: when first booting. But it hangs in the middle of booting (after the graphics have been loaded though).

    Please help. What to do?

    Hello Buizerd,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    Could you please let us know the exact name and the build number of the product you have used?

    Please also clarify whether you have tried to perform the partitioning operations within Windows or while booting from Acronis Bootable Rescue Media.

    Please boot up from the Windows Bootable CD, then go to the Recovery Console (the first Repair option you come to).

    From the command prompt please type:

    BOOTCFG /rebuild

    After that, please reboot your computer.

    If this does not help then please create Acronis Report in the way described below:

    - Download and run Acronis Report Utility;
    - Select the "Create Bootable Floppy" option;
    - Insert a blank floppy disk in the A: drive and proceed with creation of the bootable floppy;
    - Boot the computer from this diskette and wait for report creation process to finish;
    - Collect the report file from the floppy.

    Please submit a request for technical support. Attach the collected report file to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with the solution.

    Thank you.
