Topic: NTFS resize bug strikes again!
I am fairly new to the open source/Linux community, so please bear with me and excuse me if I ask newbie questions.
One of my computers is still running windows, and I tried to repartition the hard drive yesterday to split a single NTFS partition into two NTFS partitions. I created a bootable USB running knoppix 6.2.1 which includes GParted 5.1. I performed several other operations first (which worked fine) and then tried to shrink the size of the NTFS partition and encountered the NTFS resize glitch.
google led me to http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?id=13937 tutorial on how to fix the glitch, and i felt confident enough to try it. I seem to have messed something up, because after following the instructions to a T (or so I thought), both Ubuntu and Knoppix are still unable to mount the drive.
Worse, this was the C drive from my windows machine, and like an idiot I did not back it up. The drive is now unbootable, and I cannot access it from Linux to get my data off. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Here is as much information as I can think to provide:
When I type parted /dev/sdc unit s print I get
Model: WDC WD50 00AAKS-00UU3A0 (scsi) Disk /dev/sdc: 976771055s Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 63s 192779s 192717s primary ntfs boot 2 206848s 545471009s 545264162s primary
Here is the edited .pbr file that I copied to the drive:

and here is the original error message I got from GParted:

If anybody can help me out or point me in the right direction as to how I can fix this, I would be very grateful.
