    The readout looks OK also, so I have no idea what you might need to do, if anything.

    One thought would be to disable the Windows 8 Fast Startup for a while to see if that helps. It is in the Power Options under Define what the power buttons do.

    This is what I got.

    Maybe there is some sort of diagnostic tool that can check for start up problems?

    Oh and I just remember something:

    After I boot up my computer after the partition size change, windows said something about needing to restart to avoid data loss.
    When I restart, the part where it shows Lenovo + loading circle, below it was a text that says n% complete.
    So basically it shows BSOD after you resize the partition, then there's a progress number below the boot screen loading circle?
    I think there was a system file corruption, that may cause the BSOD earlier, and being fixed by Windows, that's why it shows a number below the loading circle. And i also think that because the clusters is so fragmented (partition resize may cause extreme cluster fragmentations), it causes the delay from boot to login.

    Windows hates 3rd party partitioning tools. It's usually much safer to use Windows Disk Management when dealing with a Windows partition.
    I suspect you'll need to run a chkdsk on the Windows partition. If necessary run it more than once - until no errors are reported.

    Yep, i agree with you Duckface.
    3rd party partitioning tool tend to resize partitions beyond the point where unmovable files are located. Sometimes the files are critical to Windows itself, so basically it was *almost* a suicide mission.

    However, the partition management of Disk Management is quite difficult to use due to lack of GUI/sliders (you have to deal with the numbers itself).
