Mac recovery drive overwrote my Windows partion

#1 Post by randylubin » 12 Aug 2015, 06:38

In trying to fixing a different issue, I made things much worse - now I'm looking for help.

I have a dual boot hackintosh that has a Windows partition and a Mac partition. In experimenting with TestDisk, I accidentally created an extra Mac partition (perhaps a recovery drive?) that split my Windows partition. Windows won't boot anymore but I can still see the files when I run TestDisk.

Any thoughts on how I can get Windows to reboot?

Here's the Analyze report:

Code: Select all

>P EFI System                    40     409639     409600 [EFI]
 D Mac HFS                   409640  233836767  233427128
 D MS Data                  1351681  235106304  233754624

Thanks in advance for any help!
