I installed Windows 7 on a new partition then tried to wipe out my old Vista partition. After I finally was able to resize my new partition to the whole disk using Gparted, Windows won't boot up anymore. The Windows recovery won't recognize my installation, and neither will bootrec. When I try to boot up, I get an error that \Boot\BCD is corrupt and that I should run chkdsk. But, when I run that, I get an error that the disk is locked.
Am I up the creek without a paddle? If necessary, I can throw my HDD into a case, get my data off then reinstall Windows, but I'd like to try a recovery if possible.
