If the partition is a boot/system partition then

 - the "hidden sectors" field in the BPB must be adjusted accordingly

 - if the place of the new partition changes in the partition table then
   additional modifications are needed e.g. to boot.ini, etc

 - files and the related NTFS metadata used during boot must be in the
   actually set BIOS addressable range
