Windows 7: Windows 7 - Error 0xc0000225 after resizing partition, can't boot

Windows 7 - Error 0xc0000225 after resizing partition, can't boot

Hi everybody,

I tried to resize my Win7 parition with Esaeus partition manager. So I had to restart win7 and before starting the SO the program began resizing the partitions. Unfortunately my brother plugged off the pc and when I restarted the pc on Win7 I saw this error:

0xc0000225 "boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"

What I care most are the files that were in this partition!

So I tried first to save them from XP but it doesn't show the Win7 disk but only the Xp one and the partitions showed are only the xp one and a green one saying "available" and this one used to be the win7 one.

Then I tried to boot with the Win7 disc and use the startup repair wich the first time seemed to work and after restarting and using startup repair once again it said "unable to repair, send to.." (by the way i can't even restore the system by an image file)

What can I do ?

That's very bad, you must not interrupt/Plug off the PC during partition HDD.
Try recovery software such as Acronis Disk Director that have "Partition Recovery" feature.

I tried that and also Get Data Back but I can's save some files (unfortunately the most important ones) because it says unable to open file or directory. Why?
