    Partition Manager Crash


    So I just installed Mint 14 KDE 64-bit yesterday and today I was doing some computer cleanup (deleting some some extra partitions created by dell and moving others around to have a free partition for files). So I was in the process of moving my windows partition to the left and it got to around 21% when the partition manager crashed on me! Now I am left with an unbootable windows, which I cannot reinstall because I don't know the key #! (I also have some less important files that I didn't backup but I would rather keep). I tried running a disk check in the Partition manager, but windows is stuck in hibernate... Do you guys have any input on the matter? I would really appreciate it, thanks!

    Try using a partition manager from a LiveCD to see if it can repair/move/resize the partitions. I like gparted, and have never had a failed partition change using that tool, but any Linux partition manager is worth trying.
