This is my first post in this forum. I am glad I found it!
Well, I am having trouble booting my Windows 7 after I've made some changes to my disk partitions. Here is what I've done:
Before my changes, I had the following:
Hard Disk: 500 GB partitioned as follows:
- Partition 1: Windows XP (boot)
- Partition 2: Windows 7
- Partition 3: My data
My Windows 7 used to have letter C: as system drive and everything worked fine. I then decided to remove Windows XP from my machine so I deleted partition 1 and used Linux Parted Magic to reorganize them so I have now:
- Partition 1: Windows 7
- Partition 2: My data
The problem was I forgot to flag Windows 7 partition as "boot" and had problems to boot. Until I figure it out I tried to boot using Windows 7 DVD and performed a couple "Repair startup problems". Only after I used Parted Magic to flag it as boot partition I could get a boot loader repair done.
Now, my problem: When I boot Windows 7, it displays a message "Preparing your desktop" for 5 minutes and after that it displays a blank desktop (I can call Task Manager). It also says it could not find my profile. By opening a Command Prompt window here is my surprise: driver
letter is changed to "D:"! Probably it is not finding anything because Windows 7 was installed with system partition as C.
I don't understand why this is happening. Letter C does not seem to be used by anyone. Anyone knows how to solve it?
PS: If I boot with Windows 7 DVD and open a command prompt window, I see system partition with letter "C:"
Thanks in advance,
