    Hello follow this:

    Right click on "Computer" in windows 7, and select manage.

    Then go to Disk management, and assign a drive letter to the drive you want to see.

    Yeah you need to go into the partition manager (type in search bar) and assign them letters.

    I want to know whether you are administrator on your machine I mean to say that if you are not logged in with the admins account then try and do the same because sometimes the privileges are set in such a way that administrator only able to do it. So give it a try and then see whether the system asks you to restart it again or not.

    Yeah No probs dude. But before that i would like to ask you, did you tried doing all these stuffs from Device Management? If not give a try. Hope you might be aware of the Device Management path as you sound technical. If still you get face the problem. Than PM me your Teamviewer ID/Pass and notify me here in this thread.

    When we get "no ntldr found" error on startup, the only solution i have seen at this point is re-installing the OS. I have faced this issue many times in my PCs, tried many thing to fix it but no succeeded. Only reformatting fixed it. So, i think you should go with the same. Hope the partition problem will also be fixed while doing this.

    i succeeded to access C: partition but the other partitions now seems to be unlocated
    is it means that all data inside are lost?

    Hi theaubolgs,

    I think that you would be able to get your data back. The difficulty part is that because your partition allocation is so screwed up now it is hard to tell where to look. So before doing anything try a "Complete Format Recover" of the 60gb unallocated drive letter. After that try a "Complete File Search" of the 60gb unallocated space for specific file types. Lastly try a "Fast Format Recover" of the physical drive on which all these partitions were located.

    Sorry man, we dont provide such kind of services. But in the meanwhile, you need to create a partition ( New Simple Volume ) first. Or extend the partition immediately on the left to incorporate it, using Windows Disk Management. If you want to add the space to the C partition - you need a 3rd party partition manager.
