Re: Best way to shrink Windows on new laptop? -SOLVED

Well, it worked this time. I did ntfsresize (from Knoppix); then cfdisk
to resize the disk to 11,000 MB with NTFS file type.

When I rebooted, Windows again failed to start and I got the rescue
stuff. However, instead of giving up and reinstalling Windows as I did
last time, I just exited the Rescue page and this time Windows ran
chkdsk and then started up.

What may have made a difference (I'm not sure) is that I also made a
temporary partition occupying all the blank disk apart from the resized
Windows partition and the reserved partition.
