invalid partition table

#1 Post by testeur » 19 Feb 2018, 21:47

hi everyone,
i'm writting to you because last saterday evening i got a message "invalid partition table" on my screen while trying to boot on my windows 10 os. Just before that i had tried to install linux as a dual boot with windows on a bootable usb made with the software unetbootin, everything seemed okay until this message. I really think i did something bad when i did the partition on the linux installation.

Then, I created a bootable usb with an os that contains testdisk and many other useful tools like partimage, Gparted, ... So i launched testdisk and did these following steps :
(sorry if the pictures are taken with my phone but the os i'm running on is strange and i couldn't take any screenshoot)

1) I choosed to create log and clicked on the intel partition because testdisk told me it :

2)I did a Quicksan that only gave me that (linux swap is my boot usb) :
Image

3)I decided to do a deeperscan that showed me scary things :
Image

4)Testdisk told me that some partitions couldn't be recovered, i hoped this wasn't windows 10 partition :
Image

5)I clicked on continue and testdrive showed me the partition that could be recovered (i think) :
Image

6)I checked the second, third and fourth partition in the list on the previous picture that seemed to be a duplicate corrupted partitions and i saw this :
Image

7)The fifth, sixth and seventh partition were also duplicate partition but didn't seem to be damaged like the previous one, and i was happy to see that all my windows files were there:
Image

8)the few next partitions on the list were damaged but not the last one :

Here's the testdrive.log file :

Hint for advanced users. dmsetup may be used if you prefer to avoid to rewrite the partition table for the moment:
echo "0 3873656832 linear /dev/sda 2048" | dmsetup create test0
echo "0 33368064 linear /dev/sda 3873660928" | dmsetup create test1

So now i'm stuck on the partition list and i don't dare to do anything that could make things worse, ... maybe the linux partition is overlapping with the windows partition and if i delete the linux partition that could fix everything? or maybe i juste have to fix the partition table with the advance tool of testdrive?(because of the invalid partition table message when i boot my hdd )Or should i just write one of the three partition that contains my windows file? but wich one then?

I don't have any external disk to save my disk but i could possibly buy one if it's not too expensive. Indeed i'm a student and i have a lot of important work in my windows partition so i really need your help. I hope you have read everything and i'm sorry if it was too long.

Thank you for your answers.

Re: invalid partition table

#2 Post by cgrenier » 20 Feb 2018, 07:03

Looks like you have deleted your windows partition.
After Analyse/Quick Search/Deeper Search, use 'p' to list the files from your Windows partition.
When you have found the correct partition, set this partition as *(bootable).
On next screen, choose Write, confirm, BackupBS and confirm, Quit and restart your computer.
This will remove your Linux partition and should restore your Windows.
Read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf if you need to fix something else.
You probably will have to boot from Windows CD/DVD and fix the installation.

If you still want to install Linux, backup your data first, resize your WIndows partition and install Linux in the free space or install Linux on a new HDD.

thank you for you answer.
I did what you told me (to the correct partition) and it appears i have problem with the boot sector, i'm gonna check the pdf file you gave me but if you could still help me at this point i would really appreciate.

Image

Image

maybe should i rebuild the boot sector (and then click on dump in the second picture) ? Or do i have to click on Repair MFT on the first picture?

EDIT : I found out this explanation about testdisk but i don't know if it's what i need to do ? :

Image

EDIT 2 : Finally everything was okay and i just had to reboot my pc, but now that gave me this message :

Image

can i download the windows 10 iso from internet and install it in a bootable usb?

EDIT 3 : i successfully created a bootable usb windows installation but the problem is that windows cannot be detected by the recovery system even with the terminal:

Image

Maybe do i have to go back to testdisk to fix something else? Because when i list the partition on my principal disk they don't show me windows partition :

Image

After that i liste the volumes on the only partition and that gave me that, i actually don't know what to do now :

Image

does the star before the Volume 1 called C mean that my computer must boot on this one?

EDIT 4 : I could finally convert the windows partition from RAW to NTFS with some commands :

Image

but the problem is that when boot on my hdd disk, i have the logo of windows 10 and then i have this orange screen :

Image

if i click on enter it goes back to windows logo and then on the orange screen again. If someone know how to fix it i would appreciate.

EDIT 5 : finally i wasn't able to fix it but i could store my important data from the terminal of windows recovery in a usb driver. Then i formated my hdd and reinstalled windows 10.
