Windows 7: [BUG] moved Win7 partition - Win7 don't boot properly

[BUG] moved Win7 partition - Win7 don't boot properly

Hello all, I come to you because I have a big problem :

I had my HDD like that :
- system reserved (primary)
- Ubuntu (primary)
- Win7 (primary)
- Win8 (secondary)
- DATA (secondary) (with all my users datas !!)

I used >>Partion Wizard Home Edition<< to manage the partitions.

I decide to delete win8 et Ubuntu partition, So I moved the Win7 partition to the end, next to the DATA's one...

Next with the free space I did with the Ubuntu partition and the old position of the Win7's one, I created a new partition where I installed Debian.

Debian works well (It's from here I write this message), but Win7 has a lot of bug...

Even in safe mode, I have the mouse but a black screen without any things...
And in the normal mode, I got the login screen, but after I have a blue wallpaper with a static mouse... I can't do anythings

Do you have some tips ? I there a way to repare windows ?



PS: I'm french, and my english is not always perfect...

Actually it is neither a bug nor an issue created by "Partition Wizard". The partition in which "Windows 7" installed is not supposed to be moved. When you do so, Windows lost the information of from which partition it is booting (at least i think so ). Booting the system using a "WinPE" disc and fixing OS drive letter assignment may solve the issue.

Please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image. Tell us what you want where.

How did you "move" Win7? Did you use a partition manager like Partition Wizard to Resize Partition - Video Help.

If Win7 is problematic overall then short of reinstalling you could do a Repair Install but let us help you get it positioned exactly where you want first.
