Partition Magic 8 corrupted the partition table !

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

Yes, try it. We know BIBM won't do it.

Edit... Move about 30 GB out of the partition before you try the resize to give it some breathing space. Try resizing 1 GB smaller.

rostamiani,

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?

Re: Partition Magic 8 corrupted the partition table !

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)
 Finish

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.

Re: Partition Magic 8 corrupted the partition table !

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 :

http://www.ptdd.com/rpt.htm

but I cannot select Data prtitiion and Archive partition because they are overlapped !

Can I solve the conflict between partitions by resizing Data partition ?

Thanks

rostamiani,
Boot from the BIBM CD. Do you see the words *Errors Exist*? Do you see an E next to any partitions?

Re: Partition Magic 8 corrupted the partition table !

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

Re: Partition Magic 8 corrupted the partition table !

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)

Re: Partition Magic 8 corrupted the partition table !

I cannot edit  End LBA for any partitions !

When I select Data partition, just Delete and Properties buttons are not gray

I think you will have to copy all data in the Data partition to another HD and then delete the Data partition. The Archive partition should then be OK. Now you can created another Data partition.

Good luck.

Edit... Do your other partitioning apps give you an option to resize the Data partition?

I tried to resize Data partition using EASEUS Partition Master but this error occured :

There are some error occured while locking volum D:

Should I try to resize it using a EASEUS  boot CD ?
