Unable to boot Windows after trying to reduce partition size

Posted on: Jun 27 2014 Category :Linux > Ubuntu Views: 877 | Subscribe


I loaded up the latest Ubuntu 14.10 on my USB drive and booted using it.As my aim was to install Ubuntu alongside my already existing Windows 8.1 installation, I went to GParted Partition Editor in order to reduce the size of my Windows partition as there was plenty of free space (200GB+) available on that partition. While the process was going on, it suddenly hangs up and my laptop shuts down.And the next thing I know, I get a Windows blue screen error telling me that a device is disconnected and it cannot boot. It now gets stuck in boot cycles repeatedly.After using Boot Repair from my live Ubuntu USB, I got the following URL: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7707702Now, I get a 'Operating System Not Found' error when I try to boot.And yes, I confirmed that my Windows parititon still exists. I can still see all of my files from within Ubuntu on my Windows partition. The only probelm is that Windows isn't booting up.Here's a screenshot of that: Screenshot from 2014-06-26 20:35:10.pngI hope the many professionals and enthusiasts can help me boot into Windows again. Thanks a lot :)Attached ImagesScreenshot from 2014-06-26 20:35:10.png (78.9 KB)
