HELP!

I know, should have had a backup. I have db backups. I wanted the system drive to be larger so I can deploy updates to the server (Server 2003, SQL 2005). I used gParted. Now the SQL service won't start. I know I fixed this in the past but can't find how to do it.

PLEASE HELP! Essential services are down (my fault).

Find the SQL error log. What errors does it list at the end?

That one's running fine.
If you have another SQL instance that isn't running/won't start, find the error log from that instance (check the startup parameters in SQL config manager to see where it's error log can be found)

Well I found the problem. With the help of the SQL Configuraion Manager I noted my SQL was on my 'D' drive. I knew I had a larger 135gb partition but it didn't "click" with me that I was only seeing a 'C' drive in Computer Management. Finally realized after altering the drives Windows dropped the drive letter for the 'D' drive. Added the drive letter and all is working.

Thanks. Wondered why I did not see a different ERRORLOG. Sigh. Never again.
