System Reserved Partition

Hi,

From two days, i have tried to install windows 7 again but i did not know that system reserved partition was important so i delete it, then i saw all of my hard disk become an unallocated.
i search online and found that maybe partition table deleted with this problem but the data didn't deleted and it is on the hard disk(up to 190G).
So.....
I don't know what i must do...
,i am stopped from two days.
,i did not find any online solution suitable for me.
,What i hope is to solve this problem with minimum loss ...

If anyone can help >> thanks

I think the best thing to do is just to reinstall.

See if this software can repartition your Hard Drive

try reinstalling, but before you click "install now," hit shift+10 to bring up the command prompt.
at each prompt, type the following:
  • diskpart
  • list disk
  • sel disk 0
  • clean all (this will erase and overwrite the entire HDD, zeroing it and will take a long time)
  • exit
Then proceed with setup.
if you don't want the system reserved partition, you can:
  • click drive options
  • create one partition
  • delete the 100MB system reserved partition that windows creates
  • continue with setup

Gparted is an excellent tool, but in this case likely to be akin to using artillery to kill a fly

Yes madtownidiot is correct, but gparted would work

It seems, u have deleted all partition. Only way is to connect the hdd as secondary and try for power data recovery. Will recover all data. Or if not having the stuff, go for single partition. After Os installed try for data recovery

Thanks for you for replaying.
But i think i do not make my problem clear !!
I need to restore all of my data.
you tell me to repartition but that will finish my data.
I need them , i know that i can repartition but that will lose.
For Mr.Babu R , that what i need.
but i repartition again then recover or recover?!
will it read unallocated partition or i must partition this an unallocated partition..
maybe my problem is not obvious so i will try to make it clear as possible

Welcome to SevenForums, Do you have a retail version of windows7 dvd? Sounds to me like that you deleted the image that you would need to be able to restore. You also may have deleted the mbr so you cannot boot into win7. Good luck to you with this problem.
