Don't create sys reserved and C!!! Boot from macrium rescue cd and do something like this Restoring Windows partitions with Macrium Reflect v5 - YouTube

It will restore both partitions!!

Provided your Macrium image contains both. You just drag the partitions in the image into the free space.

I have just gotten back to this thread and see you apparently recovered your Partitions, excepting an 100gb unallocated space which formerly was Win7 and which you formatted to reinstall.

So there is no System Reserved to mark Active (look at the screenshot) and no MBR to recover since you were only desperate to recover your data which got wiped previously on D and E. The C partition was permanently lost when you formatted it before wiping the HD.

What I would do is now copy that data out ASAP to external source using Win7 DVD to Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or using Paragon rescue disk to recover data.

You should never have had such critical data which wasn't backed up, and now have no business running any other operations - especially an image recovery which risks overwriting the partition again - until the data is backed up. That is reckless!

If you do not have external storage to copy the data into such as an external HD then I would get one if the data is as critical as the hysteria yesterday implied. What more important reason would there be to buy an external HD now before doing anything else?

If you want to continue taking risks then install Win7 from its booted DVD to the unallocated space you deleted for that purpose. As long as you don't touch the data partitions which you've confirmed are intact, it should not affect them. But to run an image Recovery right now would be reckless without backing up the data first.

I already made sys and C:. My 64bit has damaged and made them with a 32bit disk.
And in first couple of tries and once with 32 bit disk i had some errors. But now macrium runing and my D and E was visible with all data and now the image is being verifying. Still im via phone. I wil upload those errors.

Are you confident that you directed Macrium to reimage only the Unallocated space?

How confident are you of this? Your data may depend upon it.

If you cancel Macrium and it hasn't already formatted or overwritten your data then you can copy your data out and start it again.

I'm appalled that you would have priceless data which you were able to miraculously recover and then not back it up before doing another risky operation.

greg, its runing fast as it is just 9gb.
I thnk i have no options left here? Am I? I checked before execute. Sys reserved set as active and all other are primary. And its same as it was before. Exact sizes and ran verify and it got successful too.
But dont knw now, i thot my D and E was secured. And theres little strange on run, curent progres is 50% and overal is 40%, before it wasnt like this though. Both runs pararell

Yes, Im well confident I selected newly made partitions. Past day i just run this, but here I myself directed these 2 on their locations.
And no need to worry, im well familiar with macrium. Now copying is completed, and now its running a verification process.

Why would you think D and E which you just recovered only by a miracle process are safe to do another advanced disk operation, without backing up the data?

I'm beginning to see that the data was not as critical as you led us to believe yesterday. Otherwise you would have copied it out at all costs, first thing.

NOTE : That unallocated space was partitione by runing a windows installation disk. It made system reserve and set it active and made a 100gb partition as disk 1 and it is a primary but didn't offered a drive letter.
In macrium, I chose auto for assigning drive letter and it assigned it C. Yet its verification runing. Overal progres is 93%.
