bricked my laptop :(

Post by sarmas » 16 Sep 2011 07:28

Hi guys.. I ran into a problem.. So I followed the procedure for changing from dynamic disk to basic by opening the hard drive with Hdx and changing the value from 42 to 07 on 01C. I restarted and my computer got bricked - doesn't load windows at all. So I am able to turn on my computer though and I managed to get Ubuntu run from a USB drive. I can also access all my files from Ubuntu that are on the HDD. Would returning the value from 07 back to 42 solve the problem? I could try - but I don't know how to install Hdx or similar software on Ubuntu. Could anyone please help me? Gosh I'm impressed how stupid I was to do this by myself.. :(

HxD doesnt run on ubuntu. If u have a windows install cd (vista or up) u can put hxd on a thum-drive and start it from there.
And uf its the only thing u changed then yes, changing it back should fix your problem
