    i have vista installed on my 80G ata HD , 1 partition only
    and i use disk director 10 to resize 20G left for XP and remain 60G vista . I sure the HDD dont have any physical or sector problem . During the conversion , it fail .

    few day later , i use another HDD to test vista and resize , also the same problem .

    Did you try the resize by booting to the DD CD or by starting the procedure in Vista?

    If you try and Shrink the Vista partition using Vista's Disk Management, does it work correctly or do you get the same error?

    When you say "can't boot" what do you mean? Are you getting an error message? Is the computer just showing a blank screen? What?

    Hi Sam_Y,

    Prior to 'resizing', whether using Vista's build-in disk mngr or 3rd party (PQ_PM v7 & above is a good P-resizer) have you done a disk cleanup and 'defrag'? ...And thereafter, a fix-dskChk??

    Coz after your initial 'clean' install of an OS (including each & every app install/uninstall), disk are always heavily fragmentized. And that... if not taken care of, will always ruin your attempt to do a partition resizing!
