Solved Converted my Boot file to MBR and succeeded in deleting it.

Gigabyte / Ga-78lmt-s2p
July 21, 2019 at 06:38:58
Specs: Windows 10, 8gig
OS Win 10 completely up to date.. in my infinite wisdom I opted to convert my GPT boot file to MBR.

I took the precaution of making a Macrium backup but this was a useless excercise becase my restore disk could not see the sector or the backed up sector... just a grey square where the sector should have been.

How can I recover or repair this at present the disk is unbootable.

I also have an AOMI back up which I'm running now... , hopefully I'll have a result but I'll need to come back to report on my success or otherwise!

Thanks John, I ran out of time last night so I'll have a go later today and come back with news... good and bad! Regards.


22-07-2019 Follow-up as promised;

The Lazesoft CD certainly is a maze of information and I have spent most of the afternoon investigating all the options but to no avail it seems now that I have damaged lot more than just the boot sector and my mucking about has not helped matters. My Aomei backup was worse than useless and ultimately I gave up in desperation.

I have decided to buy a new disk and re install from scratch I'll lose a days work of information though but tell me... if I install a new disk can I overwrite it with a Macrium backup which has everything I need on it, (I can then copy off what I want)...will it work? Having done that can I "re-install the new disk?

Sounds long drawn out but I am sure your extensive nous will put me right.

Regards

There so many issues involved Ewen, all you can do is try.
If you fail, you can always start again.
