Help Pls! WIN 7 Doesn't boot after resizing partitions Hi I was using Paragon Partition Manager to resize 2 partitions, it had nearly completed however it seemed to freeze on this (final ?) stage: "Flushing system buffer. Please wait." I was waiting approx. 45 mins , nothing seemed to be happening so then tried to cancel the operation with Escape or ctrl + c but it didn't respond so did a force restart....wondering if this messed things up... As now my main partition which has OS Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit does not boot. When boot from other OS on different HDD (Vista Ultimate 64 bit) it says the disk I was resizing is called 'local disk' (not previous name) and has 0mb (and asks if i want to format) My question is - I have the original Win 7 disc so shall I use the recovery tool to do 'Startup Repair' or shall I somehow use a different recovery method? Thank you Update: On trying to boot to Win 7 it comes up with this error code: 0xc0000225 I did a search for that here and in google and so as others have suggested i've tried the 'startup repair' from the Win 7 DVD - it shows the drive which has windows 7 as 0mb.. but repair fails (i've tried at least 4 times so far),..'Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically' i've also tried the memory diagnostic from the boot up menu which didn't find any errors on the standard test but its still not working downloading the Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite - WinPE based Recovery CD Image (English) now and doing an extended test in the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool UPDATE 2 Booted from the Paragon WinPE disc, not sure what to do now In BootManager The WIN 7 partition that doesn't boot says: (no label) (J: ). FAT16 (In other sections the partition is marked as red and says unformatted). In Tools>Boot Corrector>Boot Correction Wizard options are as follows: -Windows Installation to Correct -Correct the Master Boot Record (MBR) -Edit/View Sectors -Correct boot parameters (boot.ini. BCD) which one shall i go for? UPDATE 3 i tried a few of the boot correction options and then the Win 7 boot record disappeared from the boot menu.. so now i am in Vista on different HDD partition and can see in the disk manager the effected partition is still the old previous size, showing file system as RAW, with the 2GB that i wanted to extend to (on the left side of the effected partition) as unallocated... i've also tried to follow this fix that someone posted on these forums http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/EBCD/Recovering the Vista Bootloader from the DVD but I get stuck in step 3, when trying to delete \boot\bcd error: 'The volume does not contain a recognized file system' ..... So i am wondering is there a way to change the file system back? Or is that partition doomed? shall i just do a fresh format and install and / or try to recover data then or now (in other os) using some advanced (expensive) software tools? or is there still chance of repairing or undoing the damage?...if so pls someone help!
