You've got to be kidding me; even GParted won't boot!

It keeps repeating this message for about 5 minutes:

Then it comes up with this error message:

I'm so pissed right now...

I can still boot into Slackware and get gdisk up. Can I mark the first partition as bootable and write the changes without destroying all the data in the other partitions?

Yes, so long as all you change is the bootable flag.

Would I just change the tag of the partition to ef00 to make it bootable? Because in cfdisk I can just tag it as bootable but in gdisk there's no way to do that, or if there is I don't know how.

I would concentrate on getting windows operational. Change the bootflag & then deal with the other.

I tried changing the tag of the partition to Windows Reserved (0C01) as well as EFI (EF00), but neither boots into windows.
