Is there any ways to restore lost partitions?

12 January 2014 - 12:40 PM

After incorrect manipulation with the disk, my GUID partition tables has been rewritten and part of my volumes is not present in GPT is there any ways to restore them back ?


how I've broken GPT:

I had disk with GUID partition table with the next partitions:

  1. EFI
  2. HSF+
  3. NTFS – for windows
  4. HFS+
  5. HFS+
  6. HFS+
  7. HFS+
  8. Unallocated

Some time ago I need to create NTFS partition from unallocated space at the end. I've used "Partition manager 12" in windows to create NTFS partition, but it operation fails and "Partition manager 12" became to show my disk as MBR disk with next partitions:

  1. HSF+
  2. NTFS – for windows
  3. HFS+
  4. HFS+
  5. Unallocated

i.e. first 4 without EFI. Then I tried to convert disk back to GPT, It's completed ok but I've got only 4 partitions.


After that I've trying some software on mac to find my lost partitions. One of them – "Nice to Recover data for Mac" found 3 lost(HFS+) partitions and suggest to restore files from them. But I want to restore whole partition because Now I can't create new partitions, if I do that it overrides lost partitions and I lost all data from them.

08 May 2013 - 10:52 PM

Hi, guys!

I have core i3-3225(with hd4000 onboard) processor and I'm going to buy other components and install Mountain Lion. But I'm new and not sure that all component compatible to 10.8. my spec:

Processor: Core i3-3225(HD4000)
Motherboard: ASUS P8B75-M (B75 chipset)
Memory: Corsair Value Select 2x8Gb - 1333 or Kingston HyperX 2x8Gb - 1600
Drive: Seagate Barracuda 2Tb [ST2000DM001] or WD Caviar Green IntelliPower 2Tb [WD20EZRX]
Without graphic card

Please check my configuration and give me advice if something incompatible.

HD4000 What kind interfaces it support

Hi, guys!

Not long ago I've bought core i3-3225 processor with hd4000 onboard. And now I want to buy other components and monitor. I read this forum a little bit and understand that I can't connect monitor using VGA interface(because real mac doesn't use it). I want to know what other interfaces are supported by OSX?

VGA — not supported
DVI — ?
HDMI — as I understand it's supported, but I'm not sure
DP — I think it's supported because it native interface for apple's monitors

Please tell me where i'm right and where not and what about DVI?
