    Hello everyone, new here and desperate for help . I have windows 7, I used a tool called minitool partition wizard to extend my hard drive. I resized my hard drive D and took 50gb of allocated space and extended it on to my local disk C. After my computer restarted i assume there was an error because now it says Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device. I tried looking in my BIOS and making sure it was booting from the correct hard drive and thats not the issue. Is there anyway to fix this without losing my data from my hard drive C?

    May I presume you mean UNALLOCATED space

    In MiniTool partition wizard - you may have read the warning
    from here
    https://www.partitionwizard.com/resizepartition/increase-c-drive-partition.html

    IF YOU ARE CERTAIN that it was D that you shrunk and C that you extended
    Boot back to Partition wizard and check what letters are shown NOW
    PRESUMING that you used the bootable version of the MiniTool Partition Wizard

    If that gets you no further AND I have NOT used it so I cannot vouch for its effectiveness
    https://www.partitionwizard.com/help/undo-last-changes.html
    Again as above presuming that you used the bootable version of the MiniTool Partition Wizard

    IF you installed MiniTool to the drive and do not have that bootable media then your choices are as here
    https://www.minitool.com/partition-disk/reboot-and-select-proper-boot-device.html
    You may be able to BUY it and boot from it. HOWEVER that would require you to make the WinPE on another Windows 7 computer of the same form eg 32 or 64 bit and will of course cost

    OR for free try F8 on boot and see if you can get into windows 7 advanced boot options
    if so select repair your computer IF it is available

    OR again on another Windows 7 computer of the same bit version make a windows 7 repair disk
