Windows 7: Enlarged W7 partition, now error 0xc0000225

yes, I found it as it was the first one, but my Windows 7 doesn’t start at all, I am writing from Linux, and can only show the gparted equivalent output…
I just have avg (I think) nothing else. I used the Windows partition to check Word files, and last year I changed the WiFi SSID so Windows never got connected to the internet. no updates of anything, no viruses. As said, I just used it to check .docx files that in Libreoffice come out totally different.
I logged into Windows last month, and it was working perfectly.

However, I start to think that the DVD player has some problems, though.

Thanks.

I have went back to the ranch and asked for other members to take a look and see if they can give some suggestions.

I have little knowledge using Linux. I don't want to lead you astray.
Do you have a Windows 7 install disk??

Hello my two cents worth have a read about this Dual Boot - Windows 7 and Linux

Now I do remember doing this years ago and got into a but of a pickle only because the machine used to boot to Linux in a heartbeat so I could not move fast enough to pick 7. Now as it has been mentioned you do need to make a partition for the Windows 7 and have done that recently with doing a couple of machines with dual boot 7 &10.

Now what I am going to suggest and it will depend on your budget is to make a clone of your original drive and try the dual boot on the clone - I do this as matter of procedure now because if it all goes south then I just slip the original drive back in and am back in business, and I ma not caught trying to revert back. I am sorry but I find all that fiddling around with this and that to set up a dual boot on the original drive is more grief than I want to put up with.

Now on the clone I set up the space for the dual boot system using Partition Wizard as it describes in that tutorial because it is the easiest way I know how. Now I am assuming as one of the others has mentioned you have a copy of 7 to put onto that partition??

Layback Bear and ICIT2LOL yes, I have the install disk.
Thanks Layback Bear.

ICIT2LOL, I will try tomorrow because it’s my birthday and I don’t want to spend it in front of the pc
Thanks for that explanation. I have a third 2Tb hard disk to sell, and I can use that to clone.
I haven’t read at the link yet, but I know that GRUB won’t be happy. That guy more often than not is a real pain. I will read later, thank!

Now just out of curiosity the Linux boot I am assuming it has been used for some time but if not then I would personally would try reversing the order of install say 7 first then Linux and transfer the Linux install/data from the original Linux dsik partition on the original drive.

Windows 7 has always been the first. There was a time long ago when another Linux installation coexisted with Windows 7 on the same hard drive (just after Windows) and as I deleted it 6 or 7 months ago (but Windows was still working after that) I decided the other day to enlarge the W7 partition to make it breath. It was literally in the same place of all the free space that is shown in the Windows partition now. The second hard disk came last year, when a faulty set of SATA cables (all two went bang at the same time) made me think something major happened to the hard drive, so I bought another one, and installed the Linux I am using now. As it was a newer version and it was better customised, I continued using this one, and deleted the other one which was an uglier copy.

Having installed and run multiple OS'es on the same hard drive for years, I cannot but wonder whatever gave the critics the bizarre idea of one disk/one OS. If problems arise, they are NOT caused by two (or more) operating system coexisting on the same drive.

As to the matter at hand: what does it mean that "installation disk" is not seen? Installation or REPAIR disk? Those two are NOT the same. Is ANY CD or DVD recognized on booting? Would a Linux Mint DVD be recognized?

Try enabling APIC in BIOS. Some people have seen that work.
Also, try booting in SafeMode; press F8 repeatedly during booting process, and eventually you may be able to isolate the problematic driver or program.

Just so I have this right just how many drives are connected up?? because I have got a bit lost here. Personally I would disconnect all but the C: drive and get the 7 install right first.

2 Drives,
a Windows + data partitions and
a only Linux one.

I have the Windows 7 installation disk. And the message is asking for that one.

I got a massive wave of work so I cannot afford to play with partitions as for now, I will try all that as soon as I finish!

And yes genetics73, I always had in one drive 2 or 3 OS’s, and never had any problem. Actually, by experience more problems arise when different OS’s are on different drives.
Mine is now on a different drive just because I thought the first one with Windows was dead, so I bought a new one and installed Linux Mint 17. Then, it turned out to be just a faulty SATA cable, and the old Samsung Spinpoint magically reappeared. The second partition you can see in th eGParted screenshot used to be reserved for Linux Mint 13 (I believe) and the last one for Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

Thanks, I will keep you all updated!
