Error loading operating system...can you get into the BIOS?

If so, check that the drive is properly reflected...then check that the boot options are correct.

How did you resize the partition? If you took space away from the beginning...that's a problem. What did you resize to, what sizes are the partitions you created? NTFS or FAT?
