Topic: xp cannot boot after repartition
hi, i used Gparted to shrink two NTFS partitions and then created a FAT32 one on my 160GB sata disk (windows only.) then i shrunk my reisefs partitions on my IDE 40GB disk (linux only) to create another FAT32 partiton.
however right after that i could not boot into both my linux and winxp systems subsequently.
for winxp: welcome screen but no "windows is starting up..." freezes
for suse linux: cannot read partition at dev/hda3 (the new FAT32 partition in my linux drive.)
subsequently i reformatted the FAT32 partition in my linux drive to reisefs and it could boot again. however my user home folder was lost. then i used YaST partititoner to format that problematic partition yet again to FAT32, and now theres no problem with my linux.
tried recovery console with winxp, diskpart and chkdsk showed no problems.
i can still mount and read my ntfs drives in linux (ie my files can be opened and played in linux.)
so how should i go about in making sure winxp boots again?
