Resizing partition for Win 8 stuck at pre-BIOS

    I see you made progress. I don't see SWI2 or eXcite as logged into the forum. I'm not technically advanced enough to advise what you should do.

    You are still using your phone? Do you have the forum app on it?

    I will research and find out some things for you. Hopefully someone else might check on this. Please answer my questions here and I'll keep an eye on this thread. I'll be back.

    What's happening when you boot up on SWI2's disk?

    When I boot it up when the hard drive is connected in AHCI nothing happens. But when I try to boot it in IDE it boots up and honestly I don't know what to do next after booting in SIW2's disk.

    What's it doing when it boots up? Does it boot into 7?

    You mean when I boot up into SWI2's disk? It does boot into Windows but the resolution is low.
    If you're asking about if it boots into Windows 7 when the hard drive is connected in IDE then it does perfectly! No problems at all actually.

    He must of:

    a) Got it to load needed files so as to be able to boot into 7.
    b) It's able to read needed files off the DVD like a page file on a HD or HDD.

    I think it's a), but not sure. We'll have to wait for him. At least you've made much progress. Are you able to open Windows Explorer and see files?

    But I can't boot into his disk with my hard drive plugged in though so I can't see my files. I took another pic and again sorry for the quality I can't take screenshots unfortunately. This is what happens when his disk loads up fully so if I open up explorer it shows me whatever is in the disk I think.

    Ok. Good pic. There must be further instructions from him then on that.

    When you boot it up when the hard drive is connected in AHCI nothing happens. But when you try to boot it in IDE it boots up. It boots up to what? 7?

    Yup it boots into my Windows 7 desktop when I connect it in IDE with all my files and the way I left it before all this happened.
