Partition sector doesn't have the endmark 0xAA55

#1 Post by ricardo100671 » 25 Sep 2016, 22:39

Can anyone please advise if, and how, my disk may be recoverable. Seems Mac Os has written an EFI partition to it and now cannot read read in windows.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Check the harddisk size: HD jumpers settings, BIOS detection...
The harddisk (999 GB / 931 GiB) seems too small! (< 1239 GB / 1154 GiB)

It's useless to search partitions inside the partition F:.
Run TestDisk, select /dev/sdb, Advanced, select the NTFS partition, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit, restart your computer.
If it doesn't work, please post the testdisk.log file content.
