Just an update. Your transaction was voided and you will not be charged. But hopefully one of our support folks can help you out with this problem.
Thank you for the quick response!!! I uninstalled the product and deleted it.
It is not DualBootPro's fault AND we do not have to make that statement due to the fact it is a MS error not ours.
Understandable, but from a customer's point of view, that doesn't make it any better. Before my refund, I had still spent $10 for nothing, even if it wasn't DPB's fault.
The work around is simple. Download GParted Love, skrink the volume, reboot the computer. If it errors, insert the Windows Vista DVD, boot to it, do a systsem repair. May have to reboot to the DVD again and do another system repair. Once done then you are off and running again and then you could have continued with the guide.
Just my opinion, that seem possibly dangerous. System re-pairs are not always simple, and if it doesnt work out right it can cause even more problems. At that point, I might as well re-image and start over from scratch. I just wanted to shrink the volume and install XP, not deal with any work arounds. The real issue here is nothing more than Vista, I think you know my and many other's opinions on that...
Now if you follow this and get your partition resized and XP install, it woudl be the honest thing to do is BUY the software you will use to get your dual boot back.
I will re-buy it! The fact that I was able to get a refund was tremendous! You can't always do that with software and that means alot to me as a customer! I will not only re-buy the software, but if any of my tech friends need something like it, I will recommend this product. (And personally, save up for a Windows 7 upgrade.)
Have you tried defragging the volume prior to trying to run this? I could be wrong but if certain system files reside later on the disk then it could prevent you from shrinking it more than the 2GB. I looked at my partition and it would only allow me to shrink it by 85GB which would bring it from 195GB to 110GB. More than enough room for vista as I have only used about 10GB. Once I completed a defrag I was able to do much more than the 85GB.
From what I gather, the location of the system files causing the issue are semi-random. In my case, I de-fragged and it did nothing. The system files did not move...
Thanks for the help everyone!
