I have a new laptop computer using Windows Vista. I had created 3 other partitions using the Vista program. Because the Vista programs do not create the partitions that I need, I downloaded Partition Manager. This is supposed to be similar to Partition Magic. I tried to change my too big C: partition and enlarge a too small adjacent D: partition (although not sure D: is the correct letter) and now I am unable to boot Vista.
I've tried all options on the Partition Manager recovery CD and I can boot from the Vista CD. I can get to Safe Mode, but this stops while loading windows system 32 drivers and then converts to a black screen.
"Repair your computer" does not help, but I have not yet installed Vista on top of Vista. Google indicates that many have had difficulties doing this. There appeared to be no other options. I can get to a startup repair screen, but this does not help either. There is a "diagnosis and repair details screen." and no errors are listed. Also I tried to correct the MBR without success.
I will appreciate any advice.
