Windows 7: BIOS Boot loop, error when I try to re-install

BIOS Boot loop, error when I try to re-install

Hello all,

I have a laptop with Win7 x64, I re-partitioned my drive in Disk Management (shrink) and now my system won't boot.

Here is what happens:

1. Acer Splash Screen
2. Small blinking cursor.
3. Rinse, repeat (Acer screen again!)

When I try to boot from Win7 DVD, I get CDBOOT: Could not find BOOTMGR.
Please help,

Dakota (aka Dlist)
