Windows 7 - Remove Dual Boot Problem

Hi

I have followed www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/70418-remove-dual-boot.html to remove my XP partition but laptop would not reboot after and I have had to restore the image.

I originally had a dual boot system but have since changed to just a windows 7 boot and want to delete the XP partion to recover space.

I have uploaded screen capture of disk information.

Thanks in advance of assistance

Hello again.



You may have to make a robo-call to MS to sort this issue, have a look at this tutorial at the link below; though the resize process should not cause such an issue, are you sure it's not related to something else?
