Updated

I have a EC2 NTFS volume which does not boot. I need to make it bootable. I will attach the volume to a Ubuntu instance and give you the Ubuntu machine. You will do what you can. End result should be a Windows instance which uses this volume as the boot drive. You can create the Windows instance on your own account, or I can create it for you. Quick turnaround needed. No payment if it does not work.

Revised Description - The reason I posted this job is that I have a 120GB Windows boot volume (basically a custom Windows 2008 Server AMI). I dont need the 120GB - I need about 48GB max. We spin off multiple instances of this AMI so we are looking at cutting costs. I took the volume and shrunk it to 48GB on Ubuntu using instructions here- <span class="obscureText" title="Login to see this URL">&nbsp;&nbsp;[obscured]&nbsp;&nbsp;</span>/17-amazon-hosting/101-aws-ec2-shrink-ebs-volume-size-in-windows-or-how-to-reduce-windows-disk-size-in-amazon-ec2 But it will not boot. So I need this fixed. Original Description - I have a EC2 NTFS volume which does not boot. I need to make it bootable. I will attach the volume to a Ubuntu instance and give you the Ubuntu machine.
