    I have a hard disk that has two partitions, the main one is my bootable partition C: and then the extended partition is E:

    I had to add some capacity to C so I reduced the size of E and added that space to my C drive. Now I can't boot. I get the following message:

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

    If I try Windows Repair console it is clear that Windows no longer sees my C: Drive. The drive it now lists as C is the wrong partition.

    If I boot to the acronis disk all my partitions appear correctly and they seem to still have data.

    What can I do to fix this - I'm desperate?

    This problem might be due to the hard drive configuration recorded in XP is different to the new configuration.

    Microsoft's answer is not very helpful. Try running chkdsk /r at the command console. MS then recommend searching the registry to find the entry that is upsetting XP.
