    I am desperately seeking help as my production server is down. I was runnning out of space on the C: partition and added about 1 GIG of space from the D: partition that had 5 GIG of free space available.

    Disk Director asked me to commit changes and reboot. I clicked on Reboot and the server never booted back up.

    I get Invalid Operating System Error! after a successful POST.

    I have tried to fix MBR using the Acronis utility. I have also sent the report using the report utility. I have not heard from support yet.

    I am wondering anyone who is looking at this forum, who has experienced this can help me out.

    I am in deep trouble.....

    Please help

    Same thing happened to me in win2k. I had created 2 partitions on 1 hard drive 2 years ago and installed win2k on the c partition with d partition being used for data. Free space on c: went to 100 meg and d: still had 2 gig. Tried to assign some of the free space to c from d and now the pc will not boot up completely. It thinks the c: drive is d and that the d: drive is c: Now when it boots up, it startsup windows and then says saving your settings and reboots. It does this infinitely.

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    To tbrown: Please do the follwing:

    Please boot up from the Windows Bootable CD, then go to the Recovery Console (the first Repair option you come to).

    From the command prompt please type:

    COPY CDDrive:\I386\NTLDR C:\
    BOOTCFG /rebuild

    After that, please reboot your computer.

    If this does not help then please create Acronis Report once again and send it in a request for technical support. Please provide a link to this thread in the request. We will investigate the issue and do our best to provide you with a possible solution.

    Thank you.
