Topic: After shrink of NTFS partition, I have the dreaded blinking underscore
We just purchased a Compaq machine with a 200Gb SATA drive. It has a FAT32 recovery partition at the end of the drive.
I booted the Live cd of Beta 0.4 to shrink the primary NTFS partition of XP Media Center 2005, since
I did not need a 180 Gb system partition... So, everything worked fine, it seemed.
Unfortunately, a small amount of unallocated space was left "before" this partition, and when rebooted, the BIOS gave a "disk read error" message. So, using GParted, I moved (left) the primary partition (so that there was no unallocated space). This time, upon reboot, I received the friendly blinking underscore.
Anyone have a clue?
(I thought maybe GRUB could fix this, so I set up a EXT3 partition, installed SUSE 10.2, which runs fine.
However, when selecting "WINDOWS 1" from GRUB menu, I still receive blinking underscore.)
