Windows does not recognize partition

Windows does not recognize partition

I used gparted to resize two partitions on a Windows XP machine, however something went wrong, and now Windows can not recognize the partition format of the first partition (the one containing Windows), however it boots fine, and I am able to browse the data on the partition, and it seems to have the right size as well. However I fear that sooner or later this will result in some nasty problems and possibly data loss.

I believe you need to apply the latest service pack for Windows XP. You are probably using a later version of the filesystem on the other partition.
