I booted my computer with Partition Magic boot disk. It suggested a repair and I did and installed a fresh Windows 7
Now windows does not show one of my partitions in My Computer
I installed R-Studio and these logs appears :
ST9640320AS0002SDM1: Partition table at 840660992 sector and Partition at 409600000 sector overlap
ST9640320AS0002SDM1: Partition at 840661000 sector and Partition at 409600000 sector overlap
Solved! Go to Solution.

PM 8 does that especially to 2048 sector aligned partions. With primary partitions it is easy to fix but your partitions are logical volumes.
Can you tell us what partitions were present before you used PM. How do the partitions differ now? What is in G: Windows partition?
Can you post a screenshot of Win7 Disk Management?
Can you post a partinfo?

1.I had two linux partitions at the beginning of HDD
When I deleted them using Windows Disk Management, the blue screen appeared and computer restarted !
I booted system with partition magic and did the fix but PM did not show any partitions !!!
Then installed a fresh windows 7 where the linux partitions was andrestored old windows partition using Acronis Disk Director
2.There is no windows on G now !
3.How can I create a partinfo ?

Can you make a BootIt BM CD?
Download BootIt BM. There is a 30 day trial usage. Unzip the file and make a boot CD.
double click makedisk.exe, next
dot in BootIt Bare Metal, next
dot in I accept the agreement, next
don't select Image for DOS (GUI), next
dot in Mouse Support Enabled, next
dot in VESA Video, next
dot in Video Mode 1024*768 - 64K Colors, next
dot in Partition Work (Don't put a dot in Normal), next
don't choose any Device Options, next
tick in Enable USB 1.1 (UHCI), next
tick in Align partitions on 2048 Sectors
tick in Use Windows 7 MBR, next
ignore Additional bootitbm.ini Options, next
select your CD burner drive letter (you can use a CD-RW or a CD-R disc)
It's bed time for me. I'll take you further with BootIt BM tomorrow. We'll try and correct your partition overlap which is stopping Windows from accessing your last partition.

I created a BootIt BM CD but don't know how to use it !
I tried to recreate Partition Table with Partition EASEUS Partition Recovery :
but I cannot select Data prtitiion and Archive partition because they are overlapped !
Can I solve the conflict between partitions by resizing Data partition ?

I see *Errors Exist* and letter E next to Data and Archive partitions
and this warning appears in partition properties :
Data partition :
*Warning* file system ends at LBA 840660991
Archive partition :
*Warning* file system ends at LBA 1250260984

I don't think you will get this option because it is a logical volume rather than a primary partition but select the Data partition, hold down the left Shift key on the keyboard and click Properties with your mouse. Do you see an End LBA field you can edit?
With the Data partition selected, which buttons in the Action column on the right side are NOT greyed out? (ie available)
