Hey everyone, lately i've gotten an error when booting up Windows 7.

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

After running my repair disc and asking a few colleges around for help I got the computer to boot up though I noticed in the System Recovery Options that the Partition Size was 0 MB. I ran testdisk only to get these errors.

How can I get my partition back?

Currently, you have only one boot partition, is your "System Reserved" in your partition table.
But TestDisk finds another partition which ends after disk limit.
Tha's why, testdisk doesn't offer a recovery.
Did TestDisk find another partition?
To diagnose that partition which ends after disk limit, you can use the menu geometry and increase the value "Cylinder" to 31143.
You'll find the menu geometry below the menu "Analyse".
That tricky thing is, TestDisk will display your partition for recovery, because you increased your disk size virtually.
So that you can check that partition and press p to have a try to list your files.
Please let me know, did you see your files or an error maessage?
Further info will follow.

Can you mark that second partition and press p to have a try to list your files?
Please let me know, did you see your files or an error message?
