Here are my suggestion:

You d better *not* resize that partition because there are different
partition type.If you must do that, i suggest that u may try a tool
named *Acronis
Disk Director* in *Windows*.After u config done,u can try it again.

But!!!!!, I strongly suggest you might *not* do that.It s a risk.It might
lost your data on your HDD.

You still can test that tool in your virtualmachine(ie. virtualbox or
vmware)  ..
