of course, i told other people about my problem and one of them answer me just to override type 0x12 to 0x07

so, i opened cmd, typed diskpart
then something like this:

sel disk 0
sel part 2
set id=07 override

the information about diskpart i got at A Description of the Diskpart Command-Line Utility or in cmd typed /?

that's all. i`m happy )
That's great, glad you got it.
