Solved unable to boot. Disk error

June 3, 2011 at 12:32:51
Specs: Windows 7, p6100/1gb
Ok. Today i tried to create a new partition by shrinking my e: drive (i have 3 partitions on my 300gb drive)
but i unfortunately ended up making my disk dynamic.
I tried to convert it back to basic by Hex (changing 42 to 07 somewhere) and restarted my computer.

Now i see windows 7 boot screen and then a blue screen for a millisecond. I am also unable to run chkdsk c: /f tells me that the file system is raw.

You may be able to repair the partitions by using testdisk. Read all the tutorials before using. Get testdisk at the link below.

@othehill I can't boot into my windows so how should i run it.

Also i have just started running 'start-up test' from my BIOS menu. Will that do something?

✔ Best Answer
"Download binary executables and source files for DOS, Win32, MacOSX and Linux".

The above is an excerpt from the link I provided. You can use a live version of Linux that runs from a CD.

Recovering multiple partition can get complicated. If you don't have too many personal files it might be easier to just recover your files and redo to drive. If you get to that point, try using recuva. Get recuva at the link below.

My laptop was new so there was not much data. I cleaned the whole disk using diskpart and created new partitions.
Thanks for your help anyway :-)
