Hi, nothing has changed. Still using Hiren's BootCD to boot into Windows.

Go back to message #6. You had posted a Screen Shot of Disk Management. It is the top thing in #6. I just can't believe there isn't a problem with it. Would you mind posting your Disk Management again so I could compare the new one you will post to the one in message #6

Hi amirasyraf,

It looks like you have a completely empty sector 0 - no MBR code, no partition table in it.

Partiition Recovery Wizard did find the lost partition. Just put a tick mark against the found Partition in the square and then look down into the preview map. Does it show your drive as before? If yes, just click on Finish and then Apply in the main screen menu bar. This will write the partition table into Sector 0. ( You need not worry . It is going to write only the missing partition table in sector 0.Your data which begins after sector 2048 will not be affected in anyway)

After doing that on the left pane of the Partition Wizard click on Rebuild MBR to write the MBR code into sector 0. Click on Apply again.

You have now restored the missing MBR code and partition table in sector 0. Hopefully your PC should be able to boot now.

If you want to be very cautious you may check your sector 0 in the present condition using bootice before restoring the Partition table and MBR code in it. If you want to do that, install bootice for your bit version of Windows and post the screenshot of sector 0.

Using bootice: Lost partitions!

( Remove all other USB connected storage devices - pendrives, external HDDs)
