Windows 7: Windows 7 partition lost. Laptop cant boot

11 Oct 2015   #11

Windows 7 x64

Just to let you know

After your last post here I made bootCD of TestDisk to try copy data to external HD.

When I did a fullscan, it did find a backup of windows partition table that did not overlap with system partition.
So I took my chances and recovered it.

After reboot it said he need a boot file(cant remember file type) so I lunched Startup repair that fixed the problem.

After a second Startup repair the win7 booted up normaly.

Then I could do full backup of my data from all drives and burned theToshiba recovery disks.

Before reinstaling win7 I run Seatools for Dos to find and fix 5 bad sectors.

Now everything is Ok and run normal.

Thank you for your time and help
