I decreased the partition size of my macbook and on windows used Partition Wizard to increase the partition of my windows however after the process was completed I was unable to launch windows( It failed to boot and have me an error 0xc000025). I can still see the windows disk on launch when pressing command and can also see it on the mac osx partition i.e my files are there it just isnt booting. Please help ! MacBook Pro 13-inch mid 2009

  • Hello David , I am using mac osx 10.9.5 . I do not have a working optical drive. And yes i did use boot camp assistant to install windows 7. – Abdul Salam Alvi Dec 8 '19 at 12:16
  • No I believe it was installed via a usb drive – Abdul Salam Alvi Dec 8 '19 at 12:31
  • I have edited my answer with the partition tables can you check it – Abdul Salam Alvi Dec 8 '19 at 12:58
  • It is actually possible and in fact I have just installed windows 7 via a flash drive again now from scratch unfortunately i wasnt able to get my previously stored data. PS I used this link in my bootcamp assistant to allow me to use a usb drive apple.stackexchange.com/questions/170759/bootcamp-no-iso-option – Abdul Salam Alvi Dec 8 '19 at 19:00
  • Well, that is why I did not want to say you were wrong. I assume since you reinstalled Windows 7 that now everything is working OK? All the hardware/drivers are working and you can access the Windows volume from OS X? – David Anderson Dec 8 '19 at 21:31
