Dual Boot problem Win 7/Vista

I have Windows 7 and Vista Dual booted and was attempting to to shrink my Vista partition in Computer Management while in Win 7. I was able to make a "New Volume " at 2.8 GB but after rebooting, when i go into Vista, I get a quick Blue then it reboots. Win 7 works fine. here is a pic of my Computer Management: boot.jpg picture by toddinav - Photobucket
