I could not login to Windows 7 on my laptop as I had forgotten my password and could not reset it as it was a locked down pc.

 

I was following a guide online on how to recover/by pass the password and was on chkdisk on command prompt. Accidently i deleted disk 0 which had all the partitions on it! Now when I turn on the laptop I get the error message "Invalid partition table!". Pressing enter gives the message "No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine". 

 

What can I do to load Windows back on the PC? I have no boot up disk or backup :(

 

Any help would be appreciated!!

Hi, Error message invalid partition table means hard disk drive 0 file system or MBR is not supporting. It may main culprit for the error. You can try free data recovery software which can help you in recovering of all deleted partitions.
