comment Reboot fails with “Invalid partition”
Thanks for the information. Yes, I realized what I did was risky, and that gparted might not do things exactly right. Unfortunately the recovery partition was in the "middle" of the disk (after partition 0 - OEM, but before partition 2 - Windows). I forget the details exactly, but the Microsoft disk management tool either didn't support deleting a partition in the middle of the disk, or didn't support resizing in this scenario. Like you, I suspect that the only way to fix this will be to repartition, reformat, and reinstall everything from scratch using just Microsoft's tools.
