PTDD is not for nt6.

Try booting PW cd Greg suggested and use the partition recovery module.

After it has completed the scan it is important to tick ALL the partitions you want to recover.

I'm afraid your C partition was not recovered. Did you run the Partition Recovery Wizard as shown in Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard Video Help?

If it does not find the partition then it likely was ruined by the app you ran which has not support for Win7 and which I've never even heard mentioned here in three years.

Have you tried running Lenovo factory Recovery using the steps posted earlier? How to use the Lenovo pre-boot service partition to recover your software

If Partition Recovery Wizard cannot recover the C partition you ruined, and Lenovo Factory Recovery will not run from boot, then your options are to run Recovery Disks you pre-made, or order Recovery disks for your model from Lenovo.

Or you can get a superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - everything you need is in the link.

Can you post back a camera snap of your maximized Partition Wizard drive map and listings? Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

From booted PW CD mark the 200 mb System Reserved boot partition Active by rightclicking to Modify>Set to Active, click OK.

Then click on Disk 1 to highlight it, from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, OK, APply both steps.

If this fails to start Win7 boot into Win7 DVD System Recovery Options or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until Win7 starts on its own.

If these steps fail, change the Active flag to Win7 partition itself and repeat the steps above exactly.

If these steps fail then we have to consider the possibility your original problem was infection and attempt to disinfect and then run the repairs again. Steps here: Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

Did you complete the steps given in my last post to Rebuild MBR and then if necessary run three Startup Repairs?

What are you asking about Lenovo Recovery? It may or may not work once Win7 is booting again. Did you try running it yet from boot using the hotkey?

I would complete the steps first to try starting Win7, including disinfecting if it won't start to make sure the original problem wasn't infection.

i clicked for full scan. because before i got problem with loading windows 7 . i had about 150gb and now just show 40gb used in Drive C ( Get databack can find it . i tried with hirron cd and worked).

after full scan (now 80%) Rebuild MBR. but i have a question about how i can order Windows Recovery CD/DVD for my laptop? is that free? or can i pay for it and download it? because lenovo in USA and don't send to IRAN for me.

Also can i repartition my harddisk and make a new hard drive for lenovo y460 hidden for recovery and copy all data to new hard drive?
Also before when windows don't loading i tried for Fn+F11 and don't effect and don't work!

Also if a friend have lenovo y460 DVD Recovery. can i use it? ( this mean for windows genius serial number is same) or different for my laptop?

Mark the LENOVO_PART (14GB) partition as active (with partition wizard) and boot from harddisk. Now it can install factory settings.

But do you really want that?
