The RAW (unformatted) partition is 0MB in size!
right click on system reserved->properties.->tab "partition info". What is the first and last physical sector?
right click on LOCAL DISK->properties.->tab "partition info". What is the first and last physical sector?

You have "system reserved", "local disk" and "DATA". "Local Disk" is most likely what is called C in WIN7. What was DATA called (E or F?)
"system reserved" normally doesn't have a drive letter in normal win7. Did it have a drive letter when win7 was booting normal? If so, what drive letter?

So.... what was C,D,E,F?

You have 1 very small partition "system reserved" 100MB. And unallocated space at the end of disk, also very small. 2 partitions are still there 103GB and 97GB. Because drive is 465GB in total.... 265GB is lost.
The RAW partition is actually C about 265GB. Now I understand what you mean.

Simply delete RAW and do a partition recovery (unallocated space, quick scan). Does is find anything (ignore fake partitions size 3MB or so).

You can safely delete the RAW partition.... it's fake/corrupt anyway. Delete a partition only means delete the pointer in partition table

If it can recover it, make it primary. "system reserved" is active I assume? Leave that active
