Solved GPT Hard disk Issue

January 28, 2014 at 11:10:04
Specs: Windows 7
I had a HDD with GPT protected partition in my laptop. Laptop now doesn't work. I mean there's no OS in it. And I am unable to install Windows in it or create any partition. So I tried to connect it with my desktop. But it doesn't show in there. I checked in Disk Management too only 1 partition is shown when there were 3 in laptop. I don't know anything about this disk partitioning. I checked on net there it was written to clean the drive in command prompt. I don't know it will work or not but it will result in loss of data that I don't want. Any help would be appreciated
I want to solve the disk partition issue. the data in it is important.

What is it you want to do? Do you want to install an OS on it or recover the data or?

✔ Best Answer
First off I would say that your problem is why it is recommended that you always maintain backups of any data you wish to keep.

That said, I suggest you look at the links generated by my link below. The Seagate link is very comprehensive but doesn't address any recovery options.

Your best option may be to connect the drive in question to a computer that supports GPT.
