Windows 7: Some Trouble I'm having

Some Trouble I'm having

I have 2 hdds in my computer. One harddrive has one partition with XP, another for data, and another for Windows 7 RC. The other drive has one partition for data and another for a newly installed Windows 7 complete with a restoration of all my RC data. Everything worked okay with the new Win 7 install and restoration. The XP partition at that time was listed as primary and active. The new Win 7 partition was listed as system, boot, etc

Having no more need of the XP partition, I used partition manager to delete it and then joined it with the data partition. It had me restart to finish the repartitioning, but when I tried booting into the Win 7 partition, it failed, flashing a BSOD and then restarting the system. I used the disc to attempt a repair, but it wasn't able to fix the issue.

I'm oddly still able to get into my RC partition, which is where I'm typing this message from. I could reinstall 7, but I was hoping for an easier fix. Its absurd that an XP install has caused my Win 7 install to stop working. Any suggestions?

Okay I checked what the message was in the BSOD and it says "C0000135 program cannot start because %hs is missing" I tried doing a google on it and there were no similar problems to mine.

Well scratch everything that I said, it turned out to be an issue with Partition Manager, not with deleting XP. I chose last known good when starting up the new win 7 partit and it booted up fine. I should of thought of that in the first place, oh well. Anyone know of any good partitioning software that I can use to extend a partition into another. Computer Management wants to turn the disk into dynamic, which I don't want.

Post a screenshot of your Disk Management and we'll see what needs to be done.

You save everything that is on "I" to an external disk or to the other internal disk. Then you delete the volume/partition "I". Define a partition in the unallocated space preceeding "I" and then join the unallocated space that was previously "I" to that new partition. Then you move the saved data back to that new bigger partition.

You have to do it that way because you cannot add space from the left of a partition to that partition. If you need a little help, here is a video tutorial I made for the purpose.

Looks like I don't have to do that, after some digging around I found another Partitioning software called Partition Master, it was free so I gave it a go. It worked wonderfully. I suggest it for anyone who is looking for a good partitioning software:
EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition freeware.

Thank you for your assistance.

I hope Easeus worked for you. I once messed up my whole system with it and I had to go back to an earlier image. That's why I do not recommend any of these programs an more (Gparted is another one of those). I found the Windows facilities to be the safest to use - even if they sometimes require a bit more work.
