Empty desktop when trying to login, after deleting/merging partitions
My hard drive contained two partitions, the first one was for data storage and the second one for Win 7.
Today I decided to merge those two partitions in order to have some more space for my programs. I realised this was not simple because of the position of the partitions (the one with the data was at the left of the one containing the OS). So, I booted from a partitioning tool CD, deleted the first partition and then merged the unallocated space with the second one. I restarted my PC and Windows booted up - everything seemed alright. I was thinking that I would need some fixmbr or something like that to make it boot correctly, but it maded to the users login screen without any problems. I logged in and waited to see. Windows seemed to stuck at "Prepairing your desktop" screen. It finally moved on after some minutes but it only came up with a blue screen (assuming it is the desktop) with only the mouse pointer on it. No start button, taskbar, desktop shortcuts or anything else is visible. From that moment I restarted many times and every time I was facing the same things.
I used Ctrl-Alt-Del and got to the task manager, I managed to open the cmd through File/New task but I couldn't open the chkdsk(asked me to open cmd in elevated mode). I managed to browse the disk through task manager by clicking File, New task and then Browse and I found out that Windows partition letter changed from C to D. D: was actually the letter of the first partition I deleted.
So here I am now with a mess and I don't know what to do. I thought to change the drive letter through registry but I don't want to make things worse.
I really apologise for the long post and for my english, too.
