    Hi,

    I have an 80GB drive, with three partitions. C: and D: are Windows XP and Vista, (about 10GB each) and E: is Data (60GB)

    I ran out of room on the Vista partition, so I tried to take a bit from XP and give it to Vista. When I ran Disk Director, I received "Error: Cannot Write to Drive at Sector xxx; Retry, Ignore, ignore All" I received one when shrinking the XP partition, and many more when trying to expand Vista.

    I tried Retrying, didn't work - so I had no choice but to ignore. Now when I reboot, Vista doesn't load, but XP does. I can't see any data on the Vista partition anymore. The Vista Startup Repair is unable to do anything, reports the following:
    Root cause found:
    Boot configuration is corrupt.
    Repair action: Partition table repair
    Result: Failed. Error code = 0x490

    And when I run "Check Partition" in Disk Director, I get the same thing, "Corrupt master file table. CHKDSK aborted."

    I've attached a screenshot and Acronis' report.txt

    Is there anything I should try before I re-install Vista et. al. for the ??th time?

    Thank you very much,
    Zingaro

    Looks like youve gotten into a bit of a mess:'(

    My Vista install takes up about 12gb... so I would suggest at least 15, or maybe even 20gb.... although it looks form your partitions that you dont have much room to play with anyway...o_O

    Your C drive has no room to spare, and your DATA drive has only 9 gigs...

    With this in mind I wouldnt cosider installing Vista, or get a larger drive...o_O
