    Hello, Sameer, I understand your Windows 11 will not boot, and you are also unable to get into the UEFI. Those are 2 completely different issues.
    Issue 1) UEFI
    There is nothing Aomei products can do to prevent you from getting into your UEFI, I am not aware of any software anywhere that could do that. Please try using an external keyboard, or try different keys, or combination of keys, such as the Fn + F2 key at the same time. Starting in PA 10.1, they have a boot order feature, but that does not prevent you from getting into the UEFI settings, or using the UEFI temporary boot menu.
    Issue 2) Windows
    You didn't say which Aomei product you were using to resize, I'll assume it is Partition Assistant (PA). PA is great software with many features, but for resizing, I usually recommend using Disk Management, or Diskpart, because they are faster and more reliable. After resizing, you are unable to boot to Windows 11, what do you see on the screen? What error message is there? Have you tried using Windows 11 USB to do startup repair, or a restore point? If Windows 11 USB is unable to repair or boot your OS, you could try Lazesoft boot repair. If the data on your PC is important, please first make a backup of your entire disk, such as with Backupper (BU). You may go to another working PC and make these utilities.
    We need more information from you, could you please reply with the answers to:
    1) Which motherboard mode Legacy-BIOS, UEFI-CSM, UEFI-nonCSM?
    2) What is the PC brand, year, model #, desktop or laptop?
    3) HDD, SSD eMMC, SSD 2.5", SSD M.2 SATA, SSD M.2 NVMe?
    4) Hard Drive partition table MBR or GPT?
    5) Which Aomei product, and which tier Standard, Pro, Other?
    6) Version of Windows, Home, Pro, Enterprise?
    7) Please post a screenshot.
    Thank you.

  • @Sameer, Did you select WinPE mode or Preos mode to reboot? The resize operations are completed under reboot mode? What boot error situation did you get?
    And, what situation did you get when you try to press hot key to boot BIOS?
  • UEFI BIOS Fn Keys
  • I have the same problem if I'm not off to a bad start with Preos and I haven't been able to do anything since yesterday -Translator
  • Jstichi, that is a problem for a different computer, I have created a separate post for you. Please post there, thank you.
