Let me start off by saying that I have already searched the interweb for this and HAVE found the solutionS but they dont really work.
I am assuming there are different reasons that can cause an Error 17. Hence, there are different solutions.
I was happily running Linux Mint and XP before this happened.
What did I do?
I had XP installed first, then I installed Mint.
I didnt give Mint enough space though since I was just 'testing' it.
I kinda started liking mint. (Sounds like i'm telling a love story) So, I decided to increase the partition size for it. To do that I had to free up some space from Windows partition.
This is where my stupidity kicked in. Instead of using Gparted, I used Paragon Hard Disk Manager.
It resized the disk fine but then it gave me the Error 17 on a restart.
I am assuming that it flagged the wrong volume.
Anyone know how to fix this?
I have a Live Linux Mint 6 cd that I can use to access the hard drives.
