Topic: SOLVED - NTFS volume size / device size error
I'm experiencing this error and am unable to start Windows XP since resizing the partition using GParted 0.4.8 from the Knoppix live DVD.
I set up to remove the Recovery partition and resize the main partition on a Seagate 1.5 tb drive. I resized it down to 500gig. Initially the delete partition ran, and the resize failed. I must have messed something up mounting the floppy drive and saving the info file because when I went to mount it on my windows laptop the info file wasn't there. So naturally I went back in and ran it again, expecting to generate the same error. However the second time it completed without error. Now Windows XP aborts with a UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME error.
GParted now shows Current volume size 1471264023040 bytes (1471265 MB)
Device size 524287540224 (524288 MB)
First sector: 63
Last sector: 1023999164
Total sectors: 1023999102
/dev/sdb1 488.28 GiB
I used commands I saw elsewhere in this forum to create an mbr file and stored it at http://www.mediafire.com/?mrulnedt2ro
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. Let me know if you need any additional info.
