    I bought Camptune, expanded the Bootcamp partition from 30GB to 40GB. Bootcamp now shows as 40GB in Finder. Disk Utility shows it as NTFS.

    When I boot into Windows it displays several screens of data and then dumps me to a grub prompt.

    Disk Utility on the Bootcamp partition stops at the "Syncing ..." prompt and hangs.

    Can anyone talk me through a repair of the MBR (or whatever)?

    I've not used camptune, I went the other direction, used WinClone.

    Less automated but it worked
    1. Delete the bootcamp partition
    2. re-create it, with the new larger size
    3. restore the winclone backup

    I did have to mark it bootable, within the app. Is there an option within camptune do to that?
