    Hi Liuwei-cesm,

    What the screenshots show me is that the PC is booting from the correct drive but there has been a corruption in your operating system files. You're attempting to extend the drive but there is no unallocated space for it to be extended into (this is what the error message is trying to tell you). You should have unallocated space on the drive, did you create a partition in the space you wish to extend into?

    Here's a guide to extending partitions on windows using disk management:

    Obviously, you need the PC to boot for this to work and your best option is to try a repair and go from there.

    Hi, Limitless,

    understand the error message.
    I gave up this issue as I might format all and reinstall OS as easier soluation for me.

    The below is the fault scenario:

    I shrink the volume without error. when restart, windows failure to load.
    Then I try to diskpart to restore the volume.

    I test in one PC(shrink volume and then go to diskpart to restore the volume. It is perfect succesflly done. But the said HDD, I get failure. It should be a individual issue.
    The HDD might be not a shrink volume issue.

    I format HDD and resinstal OS.
