Windows 7 will not reboot after using GPARTed move
I had 3 partitions -- XP(1), Windows 7(2), and a Userdata partition(3).
I decided to delete the XP partition and give 30GB to the Windows 7 partition which was low on storage.
I used GPARTED to 1st delete the XP partition, and the did a MOVE/RESIZE of the Windows 7 partition. All looked to complete successfully, and I now have 2 partitions ( Windows 7 and Userdata )
But upon reboot I get :
PXE-E61 - Media and test failure -- and the system will not reboot to Windows 7.
I have tried repairing with Windows 7 System repair and boot disks to fix the startup w/o success.
I believe it is because the the Bootmanager is not recognizing the Windows 7 partition as bootable or a valid OS --- I tried using the DOS prompt to rebuild the BCD also w/o success.
Any and suggestions welcome

If you installed Windows 7 after XP, then there were entries on the XP partition that controlled the transfer of control to the OS on the Windows 7 partition.
You're going to have to do a repair install of 7 in order to fix it easily: Repair Install
Bad news : this process will only work if I have Windows 7 up and running -- I could not even get to this point.
Good news : After dickering with GPART and Windows 7 installation disk ( repairing startup process ) I was able to get the Windows 7 partition to boot w/o the Boot Manager.
Net = All is good now !
