A Windows Server 2008 system or a Windows Vista Service Pack 1 system cannot start after you increase or reduce the size of the boot volume on a GPT disk

Support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) ends on July 12, 2011. To continue receiving security updates for Windows, make sure you're running Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (SP2). For more information, refer to this Microsoft web page: Support is ending for some versions of Windows.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista Service Pack 1 on a GUID partition table (GPT) disk.
  • Then, you convert the GPT disk from the Basic disk type to the Dynamic disk type.
  • Later, you increase or reduce the size of the boot partition on the dynamic disk by using the Disk Management snap-in.
In this scenario, the system cannot start. When you try to start the system, you receive the following error message:
Windows Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
File:
boot_file
Status: 0xc0000225
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

Cause

This issue occurs because the universally unique identifier (UUID) of the boot partition changes when you increase or reduce the size of an existing partition. Therefore, the system cannot start from the boot partition.
