oh! And if this recovery got succes, I have my image in E:, it contains what i had in C and data from the 100mb system reserved. Can I make partitions from windows installer and then restore the image? Or should I clean install from a scratch?

check filsystem of D and E first!!

no mbr??? what do you mean. partition table is in mbr. Do you mean correct mbr boot code?
That thing I talked, isn't something i know. I had a doubt that they were difrent because of this includes a command to rebuild mbr and then partition recovery. I asked that before too. Anyway, if its not concern about my data safety, I dont care
Trust me.. .do what I adviced you to do. Please post if filsystem check works without errors. And if partitions are NTFS. Maybe you have to reboot to PW after recovery so PW maps drive letters to it. Only partitions with drive letters can be file system checked
Okay, recovering now. I wil post check results.. And please make your opinion on image restore and bout time. Cuz im runing on battery.

Don't know what you mean! In E is a backup of C and "system reserved"? What kind of backup? windows image backup?

Have to go ... back in an hour or so

okay, then I think i should wait until electricity comes. Because I dont know how long this may take.
Thank you kaktusofft, thank you.

Backup is a image of system reserved and C after the windows instalation and updates, dx updates, and antivirus. The base image I keep for an emergency.

And below I wil post a another screen shot. Partitions are in perfect size and it shows the types as logical for C: and primary for D and E:.

Any sugestions are welcome on that image restore. Its a image made just after a clean instalation.

Corrections to the MBR/PBR are quick, like a minute or less. But you don't want to lose power when writing.

If used space doesn't match with what you expect then it's bothersome.

If it was me, and the data was that important, I'd clone it first. Just in case. Not saying it won't work, but I'd rather be safer than quicker to act.

thank you F5ing, you ve been advicing really good ideas at critical point. Problem with cloning is I do not have anywhere to put this. Desktop also only having 500gb. So, I think im gonna take my chances cuz I need this thing up as soon as posible.

Ahaa! Power is back. So i wil recover, check and post results. Can you give you opinion on restoring disk image thing?

oh! Kaktussoft and 5fing,

Guys, im having little bit of trouble here. I recovered D and E. And they are explorable all the data is there. But i cannot run check file system or change letter. In the pic below you can see it.

It is said that until a partition asigned with a drive letter, it cant check for file system and changing letter is grayed out and,

In the right side, you can see that status is none. I think this cause the problem and should I set these as active or what shoul I do to check file system?

Then recover both the "system reserved" and C partition. Now the disk has same layout as it was when making the system image?

Mark "system reserved" as ACTIVE
Apply all the changes, reboot to PW and post camshot
