(Solved) Black screen after reboot during resizing Hi. My laptop was shipped with 2 partitions: a primary C: with XP installed, and a hidden partition with Rescue & Recovery Utility which acts as a Windows XP CD, so I did not receive any CD's. In order to not lose any data, I wanted to shrink my primary partition C: then use the resulted unallocated data to create an extended partition. I followed all the steps in the user guide for resizing a partition. After I clicked Commit to begin the resizing process DiskDirector asked me to reboot, I clicked OK, then windows rebooted but with a black screen after reboot (no windows logon screen, no cursor, nothing, just a black screen). I thought the blank screen meant DD was in the process of resizing, but it has been blank for 2 hours now. Does DD take this long or is this a boot failure? Is it safe to force shutdown now to restart it? Please help, I am freaking out because I did not receive any CD's so I cannot afford to lose the Rescue and Recovery Utility. Edit: I have a Windows XP CD (OEM) from another computer, in case a CD is needed for booting.
