    Hello, I'm having an issue with my windows 7 partition. I downloaded winclone and saved an image of my old partition so that I could resize it and then restore the image. After deleting the partition resizing and restoring I booted up windows and it goes directly to the boot manager giving me the windows failed to start because a required device is inaccessible.

    Has anyone experienced this? NOTE: I did not unclick compress when I saved the image.

    would be grateful for any help

    Can you try a startup repair using the W7 install CD? It can take up to 30 minutes to run, so let it take its course.
