filesystem repair

#1 Post by entier » 21 Sep 2015, 00:28

Hello,
I lost access to the hard disk of my Acer Aspire 5715z laptop. I have Vista - Ubuntu dual boot on it. The recent Gentoo incompleted installation did not cause any problem. Later Vista stopped get loaded by Grub. I tried to repair this problem with boot-repair software available in Ubuntu and lost Grub. I tried to reinstall Grub from Ubuntu root partition. I failed to do it and maybe then I damaged the hard disk partition structure.
Here is the TestDisk diagnostics. Any help is welcome.

Your procedure has successfully restored the hard disk partition structure. I reinstalled Grub boot loader. Ubuntu Linux and Windows Recovery Environment (PQSERVICE) partitions get loaded normally. Later, Windows Recovery Environment (PQSERVICE) partition gives an error message ' Error Restore failed - reason 0xa0000001. Click OK to restart your computer'. Vista (ACER) partition does not get loaded, there is an error message 'A disk error occured Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart'. Ctrl+Alt+Del does not work.
Is it possible to repair Vista loading with TestDisk?
Its diagnostics is here. Thank you very much for your help.

I checked Vista (ACER) partition with TestDisk if there were a problem with Vista boot sectors. There were: Boot sector: OK Backup Boot sector: bad. TestDisk, Options, Align partitions, No, Advanced, ACER, Boot, [OrgBS], reboot. Anyway, when booting Vista (with Grub boot loader) I get the same disk read error.
The TestDisk log file is here:

I ran boot-repair program provided by Ubuntu. Here is an extract from its results:

Code: Select all

sda2: __________________________________________________________________________

    File system:       ntfs
    Boot sector type:  Windows Vista: NTFS
    Boot sector info:  According to the info in the boot sector, sda2 starts 
                       at sector 20467712. But according to the info from 
                       fdisk, sda2 starts at sector 20447232.
    Operating System:  Windows Vista
    Boot files:        /bootmgr /Boot/BCD /Windows/System32/winload.exe
Is it possible that this mismatch results in non-booting Vista? Could TestDisk update the boot sector information?
