Did you press p to see if there are any files in this one
D HPFS - NTFS 1827 181 19 38913 70 5 595779584 [OS]
If files are there,
Change D to P with arrows and write to disk.

What type of machine?
Is it vista or wins 7?

Your PQService has everything you need.

Gateway and i have windows 7..

from the information i provided do you think theres stil a chance the data is still on there?
im sure i didnt delete it
all i did was delete the partition by accident it became unallocated space then i made an partition out of it for Linux then used testdisk which restored my partition table back and it deleted something that helped boot it. the boot menu

You can do a full recovery with PQService.
Do you have a hd enclosure and access to another wins7 system?

You need to know factory restore keys for your model gateway.
You have gparted so change boot flag to PQService and use restore keys for mine it's Alt+F10
yours are most likely different.

If you look at results of first testdisk partitions overlapped so data is lost.
If you didn't backup it's gone. Fresh system.

There are 2 files you may need from PQservice.
MBRwrWin.exe
RTMBR.bin.

Before you try this do the other thing and see if it works.I'll tell you how to get those 2 files and what 2 do with them after you see if you need them.

Did you change PQService to boot using Gparted?
Right click on partition
select manage flags
select boot
Did you try Alt+F10 at boot?
