    I recently resized my partition with partition magic. After reboot my system won't boot up. So i checked the partitions but, PM reported me the partition table is damaged. So I hopefully bought the recovery expert, made a bootable disk. But everytime I boot up from the disk I got only the logo an after a few seconds the system crashes. o_O
    How can i recover my partition table/ or partition data without losing it?

    Thanks for helping me..

    - Boot the computer under consideration from this diskette and wait for report creation process to complete;
    - Send the report.txt file from the floppy disk to

    This would provide us with detailed information on the hard disk partition structure.
