Space conflict between the following two partitions

#1 Post by AlexW » 30 Mar 2013, 09:44

Hi,

I`ve got a Lenovo S12 Netbook with Windows XP and with originally 3 Partitions:
Boot Partition (Vol. C) , a second Data Partition (Vol. D) and a third hidden Recovery Partition.

After Linux (Ubuntu based Pear Linux 5) installation trial which ended in an error, I’ve got now a corrupted Partition table.

In additional to the original 3 partition there is a further 40GB Linux and a Linux swap partition. A Linux Boot Loader has not been installed.

Luckily Windows XP is still booting and also D: Volume is still present.

But I have now approx. 40 GB less disk space occupied by the Linux Partitions which I can’t use and those file system is likely corrupted too.

The Partition table is damaged now: Partition Magic (older version) did 2-3 changes, but could not help to fix. .

According to TestDisk there is a “Space conflict between two partitions”.

Current partition structure:
1 * HPFS - NTFS 0 1 1 8143 254 63 130833297
2 E extended LBA 8143 11 59 17531 53 58 150820866
3 P Compaq Diagnostics 17531 53 59 19457 80 63 30942896
Space conflict between the following two partitions
1 * HPFS - NTFS 0 1 1 8143 254 63 130833297
2 E extended LBA 8143 11 59 17531 53 58 150820866
5 L HPFS - NTFS 13565 62 2 17531 53 58 63713280 [LENOVO]
X extended 8143 11 60 13435 248 61 85030913
6 L Linux 8143 11 61 13435 248 61 85030912
X extended 13436 0 1 13564 251 63 2072196
7 L Linux Swap 13436 26 31 13564 251 63 2070528


Could somebody please help me and advise if and how it’s possible to fix this Partition table issue.


Thanks & Regards
