Yes, I will backup everything and now it has shut down and not using. Still the notebook is under warranty.
You are not the luckiest guy in the world now. You may say shit now in this case.
Still warranty... hmm let it be repaired.

But backup first. Because computer repairshop most likely just swaps the drive and put a default installation on it

will do ASAP. and I know Im not that much lucky all my life long, thanks guys.

Oh, for the backup, should I use a backup software or just copy and paste? What would be the most suitable?

Out for a little, need to call my dealer.

Copy and paste or XCOPY or ROBOCOPY from the command line would probably be best. But this must be to a different physical disk NOT a partition on the same disk.

just copy all partitions to an empty external (or make unallocated space on it). Symbolic it's like copy paste a whole partition. Remember for later they were all primary partitions and remember which one was ACTIVE.

Now can attach the external to another machine and chkdsk/f the partitions. Don't change them!
Later you can copy them back to new empty harddisk. Make them primary and make the right one active. Perform a "startup repair" from win7 recovery environment afterwards.

Quite easy and can be done with a lot of software

clone the partitions is better!! All security and file dates must be kept!

okay, thank you for all the advices.

Problem is I don't have a exHD to clone or copy entire D and E. All the data capacity is around 357gb.

So, I have contacted some of my collegues and got enoug chunks from their drives like 100gb from one, 50gb from another, 80gb from another, anothe 100 and 30 from a another (lot of traveling tomorow )

So I guess Im left with copy and paste or with macrium backup( I bought the prof version).
Dealer promised to check it and give a replacement or upgrade to 1tb for small extra money. So now its time to wait.

OK. Hope it goes well for you. The Macrium F&F backups work well. For the longer term you will need an external HDD for backup purposes.
