Topic: PROBLEM: Attempted to resize Windows 7 NTFS Partition
I have the exact same problem, only with a slightly different scenario. I tried shrinking my Windows 7 volume (sda1) to make room for a new 50gb ntfs partition. The new partition (sda2) sized correctly, but I now am receiving the "corrupt partition table or incorrect device partitioning. I really need to get this fixed ASAP as this is a work computer, is there any way you can help me get the same information IDOC provided you with?
When I pull up the information for the corrupt partition I show the following:
Device name: /dev/sda1
Status: Not mounted
First Sector: 63
Last Sector: 520120439
Total Sectors: 520120377
NTFS Volume Version 3.1
Cluster Size: 4096 bytes
Current Volume Size: 298100560384 bytes (298101 MB)
Current Device Size: 266301633024 bytes (266302 MB)
Error: Current NTFS volume size is bigger than the device size!
When I attempt to create the .pbr file, I use skip=520120440 as that is where my second partition starts. When I do this, I get "cannot skip: Invalid argument".....
Also, how do I get these files uploaded once they have been compiled? I am not very Linux-savvy.
Would this be something Partition Magic could correct?
Thanks a lot!
