Need to define start partition - Truecrypted disk

At start sorry for my english, I prefer reading and understand neither writing ;)

In short words -
You just need to find somebody who is good at editing partition tables, translating LBA to CHS etc. Tell them you need to define a single partition that starts at decimal offset 8257536 and fills the rest of the disk. Hopefully they will be able to provide you with the correct CHS values etc., and you can use the WinHex MBR template to fill them in and write the changes.
I had problem with my 1TB partition. I lost my header in Truecrypt, I restored it, but still not working. All is here -

Now, I just need to recover correct partition table to encrypt my HDD. I wanted use TestDisk, but short analyse is ~60hours remaining. It's little too long for me.

Thanks a lot

Finally I made analyze in TruceRypt (by LiveCD, time shorted from 20h to ~2.5h) and this is results:

Any idea what next?
