no boot sector found when trying to reboot

#1 Post by rlprofessional » 08 Nov 2017, 11:41

Trying to reboot after blue screen of death - using TestDisk 7.0 to recovery a windows 10 laptop.

Click analyze and two partition show with "Warning: number of heads/cylinders mismatches 16 (NTFS) != 255 (HD)
and Warning: number of sectors per track mismatches 2 (NTFS) != 63 (HD) scan disk - 2 partition

after Quick Search - 6 partitions are listed = 1st partition has a "P" next to it and when I type P to list files it has 2 files in white
and several files that are pink/red

two of the other partitions when selected and I list the files - it indicates "Can't open filesystem. filesystem seems damaged.

The other i can list and see some files

Please explain better the problem, ie. can you list the files from your different partitions, and provide the full testdisk.log file (copy/paste its content)
