I'm a linux newbie, and I messed my partition. I have 5 partition in my 500GB HD, Windows 7, Data, Data, Linux Mint and Lubuntu. I accidentally deleted Lubuntu partition using diskmgmt in Windows 7.
After I rebooted, I can't enter windows past the splash screen, and I can't boot into my linux mint either, after I use a crunchbang live usb.
I found that I have 255 partitions in my HD with 4 of it I can recognize them as my old partitions, but the other 251 are fake partitions with exact same size as the deleted Linux Mint partition.
Whenever I open gparted, my live usb just hang while gparted scan my partitions Is it possible to fix my partitions without reformating my HD? I haven't backup my partition table before.
Here is my crunchbang live usb File Manager screenshot. http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/screenshot-03262013-050907pm.php
