Bootmrg missing, recovery, now bits to fix

  1. I need some help with how to proceed from here.

    Problem developed after I tried to resize the C:partition. It is small, full and D; is big and not so full....mostly datafiles...so made a copy of D: deleted it... using the Windows System Device Manager... unfortunately it did not allow me to increase C: into the newly available space and on reboot, got the BootMrg is missing error.

    I used the provided Recover Disk, and now have Windows loading, but the path for the Desktop was set to D: so Desktop is not happy.....but I probably need to copy the backup files from D: back onto the C:\ and map them in...

    and there are still some residual issues...
    Going into Start Menu Computer C: still thinks it's only 58Gigs and D is not longer present...
    Going into System Device Manager, Disk Drive Volumes that Populate is OS C: with 60000MB Capacity and Recovery 10000 MB.

    So the system is unaware of another 400ish gigs of drive space.
    Then I will need to copy the backed up data files onto the C: and tell all the software how to find their files again..??

    Hoping someone is up for this...

    Computer owner is due back tomorrow, at least I have advanced beyond blackscreen...:)
