    Re: Windows7 not booting after GParted resize

    Thanks for all the advice everyone. What fixed things for me is booting from the windows 7 cd, then clicking repair.

    Then I ran command line
    bootrec.exe /FixMbr
    bootrec.exe /FixBoot
    bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

    In my case I used an old gparted by accident, and then shrunk my windows 7 partition with Gparted. It would not boot, I googled the problem and found this forum. Fixed in 5 minutes.

    I don't really think gparted was the cause, but Microsoft has this handy KB article.

    Gparted probably was the cause. Fine with XP but use Windows software for resizing any newer Win install (the partition where Windows is installed that is). Your problem is a common result of resizing a Win7 partition with Gparted.
