The cause however is known. GOBACK implements a non-standard scheme and what you learn is to uninstall GOBACK before any playing with partitions.
I think I know what I need to do, just not how.
Problem: I have an XPH machine that has one physical drive that has 2 partitions on it, C and D. The C is 20G and the D is 60G. I need more space on the C drive so I backed up the data and got out gparted and booted to it. It said that there was 1 partition and it was 74G and that there was 2.5G free space at the end. I told gparted to expand the partition. When I rebooted the computer I get a GOBACK error 116 and 135 saying the mbr partition tables do not match what is on the hard drive and when I just hit enter a couple of times I just see smiley faces all over the screen and the computer reboots - no progress. The current drive is a SATA and I would like to put another 80G SATA in it and copy just the C drive over to it so that the C partition takes up the whole drive and boots to it. In the "old days" I could have done this with a "ghost image" but don't have one at the moment. What's on the C and D drives are kind of important even though they are backed up I would like to do this with as little "fuss" as possible - I don't want to reload all the programs. So if it were you how would you go about fixing this? I have looked into the command console already.
