Windows 7: After Partition Changes, 0xc0000225 and cannot boot

sqr47,
Do you have a Recovery CD or UFD?

If yes, boot from it, choose command prompt, and use the DiskPart command.

If you do not have a Recovery CD or UFD, then boot from your Win7 CD and when that first dialog comes up, then type SHIFT + F10. This will get to a command prompt where you can run DiskPart.

To clean up your situation and start fresh, first use following diskpart commandss:
List Disk
Select Disk 0 (Here 0 is an example and is the most common selection in this case)
Clean (this will wipe out the first and last sectors on your disk and be just like starting afresh with a blank virgin disk)
Now shutdown your computer and install Win7 on a clean disk.
Once again when you get to that first dialog, you can use Shift+f10 to get to a command prompt and to partition the hard disk as you would like. after partitioning, Exit your way back to the Win7 install procedure and tell Win7 to install where you want it.

I suggest you go to a command prompt and type DiskPart ?
to familiarize yourself with the power and potential of Diskpart.

@iseeuu Ok thanks, I'll try out that out. And I hope I'll never have the need to partition again... Though GParted on the Ubuntu LiveCD seems a much better choice than Partedmagic 2.1, as the current version is 4.7... Also, I saw this tutorial a while back... How to resize a Windows Vista partition Do you think it would be a good, safe choice, as it is actually a Windows program, even though it is more complicated? And also, would it even work on Windows 7?

Thanks,
Sam

It works fine on 7.

Can't see the point , though. If you use Partition Wizard, it will move the files during the partitioning process.

Actually Sam, I have both Partition Wizard and GParted. Partition Wizard is very easy to use with Windows and GParted works for both Windows and Linux.

Besides having a live Ubuntu CD, I also use the System Rescue CD with GParted on it.

Cheers!

So when I have the Windows 7 Startup Repair Disc, I simply boot with it in... Select "Repair My Computer" and repeat the process 3-4 times until it works? It doesn't matter that I have GRUB installed does it?

sqr47;

You have not provided nearly enough info for anyone to answer these questions specific to your situation. Evidently your setup is not anything like the Original Poster's, so perhaps it would be more productive and less confusing if you started a thread of your own where you could describe your setup and post a screen shot of your Drive Management drive map?

The answer to your question in the second quote above is both the install DVD and the "System Repair" CD that Windows 7 will burn for you allow for a "Startup Repair" to be performed from bootable media. There are several links in the posts above that describe how to do that, with pictures similar to this one: Repair CD - System Repair Disk

Please let up know how we can assist you best?

No I had created a disc that I downloaded (I don't have access to any other machines running Windows 7) from System Repair Disc - Create but I was just not 100% sure on how to run it, and if it mattered that GRUB was installed.

So is that what I need to do, and DOES it matter if GRUB is installed?
