Gparted and part magic dont work, they see 2 partitions.. OS and UEFI .. there are no other partitions (which is a problem for alienware) there needs to be 4 (2 for dell 2 for the OS and boot) gparted was meant for LINUX.. just fyi and most of the old drives were turned into linux file system so I cant even read them.
know of a way to change all partitions back to win os from linux recovery from hirens?
Gparted Was used BY THE HIJACKERS and yes .. all are changed and were mounted to EXT2 ext3 ext4 installing gpart or partition magic didnt solve nor see anything more than what i can see in windows without them 6-9 partitions and missing files and space
At the moment he's trying to figure out how to re-install Windows 7....
windows disc worked on a usb dvd I got from a friend.. then I booted windows, installed (or I wouldnt be in windows now) but the dvd I have barely works and its set to odd settings.. max read 2x max write 2x takes 10 hours for a dvd to burn and then its unreadable cd music never works etc
It seemed his Disk Media is naff I suggested to contact Dell to send replacement Disks He said..
"dell DOESNT SEND discs.. ever anymore.. not even with new machines. I cant afford that. its something easy... just no one can seem to even link me to firmware pages or whatnot to make sure my drive is ok not even dell.
if you ask for recovery discs they cant do that either as alienware is not the same as most dell not even the same company yet its owned by dell
you have to A. make recovery discs (which i cant do since the partition is gone) aka no respawn or B. ask for a real disc which I HAVE... both real discs win7 ultimate.. 64 bit and drivers for this .. 2 dvd .. not 6-12 dvds with bloatware
So he does have his recovery disks!!!! Hurh????
