Emergency!!! Stop:0x0000007B error!!

i have recently moved my win2k server partition of my harddrive across the extended patition so i can have some space in the front part of the extended to install linux. Doing so with patition magic5.0. i then find that linux does not boot properly(for some other technical reasons), so i removed it and moved the win2k back to it's original position. But then i get this error!

Stop:0x0000007B error (.....)
Inaccessible_Boot_Device

where inside the bracket are 4 memory addresses i think.
How can i fix this? Please help, i have some very important files in win2k which i cannont access now! any help is much appreciated.

i have try searching in microsoft.com, and all their solutions are specific to situations where u moved your hiarddisk to a backup computer or something like that, which is far from my case. please help. thanks
