Boot drive not found!!!!need help

Hi, I need help with my boot drive.

I was trying to create extra drive on my laptop, since C drive had 225 GB space. I tried the 'Shrink volume' option, where it said approx. 3 GB space is available on C drive, so I said yes for it, and created E drive.

My problem started when I rebooted the system, and it would not start. I keep getting error message that 'boot drive not found' or something like that, and then ' Press Ctrl+Alt+Dlt' to reboot.....

Please Help me....

Regards,

Kumar

    Use F2 Key during startup and make sure your boot drive c: is first in the boot sequence. What is the "EXACT" msg you receive ?
