So your saying there is no hope for my data on sda2 . because in testdisk it shows me theres files on it.
Plus i cannot boot into PQservice i hold Alt+F10 and all it does is go to the boot menu I think i need to install Linux so i can atleast have my bootloader back.. But in order to do that i need to know how to resize my sda2 partition..?
What exactly is this going to do? i dont want it to start me fresh because i want to see if theres still a way i can save the data because all i did was overwrite the windows loader
You still have OS it hasn't unpacked itself.
In fact it is unpacked check look inside of your docs and see if they are there, if they are you only need to fix boot.
Check to see if that partition is labled to boot.
Right now you need to go to PQService open a tab on PQService and OS right-click and select copy on those 2 folders and figure out how to run the command to repair mbr.
Do you have another usb storage to download another usb boot to?
