Windows will not boot after partition shrink
I ran the Partition Assistant to shrink the windows 7 partition. It rebooted into PreOS mode and did its thing. However,it got stuck at the very end and said that if it didn’t reboot on its own after a minute then restart manually.
I restarted manually and then it tried to boot into windows and then said it couldn’t startup and it ran the Windows Startup-Repair. The startup-repair failed and now windows will not boot. It starts to boot, shows the Windows logo and then crashes and restarts.
Is it possible to reverse the process? If I resize the partition back to the way it was, will it fix the issue? Or have I ruined the Windows partition?
I have done this procedure before various times with no problems. Becuase I have done this various times on multiple systems, I didn't bother to backup the HD before doing this. The classic blunder.... the one time I don't back it up is the one time the procedure fails.
