Partitions, GRUB & Windows
OK story time-
Dell Inspiron e1505, Core2, 1GB RAM, etc.
80GB SATA disk:
/dev/sda1 1 6 48163+ 6 FAT16
/dev/sda2 * 7 7333 58853170+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3 8608 8632 200812+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 8633 9729 8811652+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 8633 9729 8811621 8e Linux LVM
I have Vista on sda2 and Fedora Core on sda3-sda5. In sectors 7334-8608 there is unpartitioned space that I was planning to install another OS on. Vista used to expand all the way to 8607, but I used a tool called Partition Logic to resize the partition. It said it was compatible with Vista, but I'm beginning to think it was a mistake.
It took about 10 hours to finish the resize, it said it was successful. Then I rebooted and selected the Windows item from the GRUB list (I had already set it up to boot from hd0,1 and it was working) but it gave me:
Error 13: Invalid Executable........
So here I am in Fedora writing this, wondering if I screwed up my Vista install beyond repairing. Or is there hope to somehow reinitialize it or something? Any ideas?
