    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..

    Hello jmash,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis products (http://www.acronis.com/products/).

    Could you please do the following?

    - Download Acronis Report utility from http://www.acronis.com/files/support/AcronisReport.exe;
    - Run Acronis Report utility and select the "Create bootable floppy" option;
    - Insert a blank floppy disk in the floppy drive and proceed with creating the bootable diskette;
    - 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 support@acronis.com.

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

    After that we will try to help you.

    Thank you.
