Amilo Pi1505 partition table and MBR corrupted

Postby dinox » Fri Oct 01, 2010 8:48 am

Due to an error during recovery process my Amilo Pi1505 default partition table has been corrupted. I need a dump file of the
original partition table in order to restore it. My Amilo Pi1505 was shipped with a 120 Gb Western Digital Hard Disk. The Operating System installed by manifacturer is Windows Vista Home Premium with 3 partition (1. Recovery
2. Windows Vista 3. Data partition). Could someone save his MBR and partition table and send it to me, so I could recover my data.
The process is simple:
Boot a live linux distro as root on a standard Amilo Pi1505
Open a terminal and type:
´dd if=/dev/sda of=SOMEFILE bs=512 count=1´
I need the file SOMEFILE, please
Thanks in advance

You could also try TestDisk: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

Many thanks, I already tried with other free and commercial sofwares (Active @ Partition Recovery, Partition Magic, etc ...) and I have only further damaged the partition table. At least I need to know the exact size of the partitions by default. Is it possible that none of the forum have a Amilo Pi1505 to send me a dump?
