Every time I make changes in partitions, this happens:

error: unknown filesystem
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue>

Then I have to fix it with Boot-Repair like this.

First I had Windows 7 and Ubuntu installed as a dual boot. Then I decided to add Windows 8.1, so I resized the partition -2- (these are marked on a screenshot) and created -5- and installed Windows 8.1 there. Then there's the problem, it joined up with -3- and also Ubuntu thinks my D: drive is located at the end -4- and shows it there while it shows empty space on where it actually is -6-. and seriously? my hard drive only had 500GB, not 344+344+the rest.

so how do I fix the problem with the D: drive and also I want -3- to only contain -7- and -8-. or wait... why does -3- even exist? How do I get rid of it?

Anyway, can anyone help me out and explain my situation? or will simply reinstalling the whole Ubuntu reset everything to normal? to keep it simple....

And here's how Acronis Disk Director shows my partitions on Windows. I think this is correct.
