Hi, I Hope someone can help. I have just run PartedMagic on a new Windows 7 system to shrink C: in order to be able to create an E: (Data) partition. On rebooting, I get the following error message: As it is a new machine, it was supplied with no system disk and I don't have a Windows 7 Installation Disk to hand. I guess that either the boot sector has been corrupted, the partition table has been corrupted or most likely that the system partition has been moved slightly. Can anyone suggest a way around this problem please? Incidentally, the system is an Acer Aspire 5742 According to PartedMagic, the partitions are now allocated as follows: I suspect that the unallocated 7.84 MiB is the cause of the problem and that PartedMagic realigned the "Acer" partition. I imagine that PQSERVICE contains recovery data of some sort (like Acronis)? If so, does anyone know how I would use it?
