Windows 2000 server - change partition size with paragon partition mananger 8.0 and now I get a blus screen

I have a 40 gig drive with Windows 2000 server split 8 and 32. I needed more space on the  C: drive which is 8 gig so I started by making the d: smaller by 10 gig. Then I rebooted and windows splash screen progess bar shoots all the way accross,then the windows 2000 splash screen comes up and the blue bar goes accross about 60 percent and blue screens with a boot_ drive inaccessable.

I always recommend not to use any partition editors on any server products and this is the reason why

I think your best solution would be to run a repair on the OS
pop in the cd, boot to it and run the repair.
You will need to install all service packs and updates after the repair has finished.

Follow this guide for a repair

It is imporant that it detects the OS, if it doesn't you will need to restore from your backup.

Had to rebuild and restore - Guess the Paragon 8.0 Server software is not as great as they lead me to believe
