I need some assistance and I hope somebody can assist me. I cloned two hard drives via clonezilla because one of those hard drives has bad sectors. I have Windows 7 64 bit. The original hard drives still work even though one of them has the bad sectors. The cloned hard drives will not boot. I get the message error File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occurred while trying to read the boot configuration data. I attempted some solutions that I saw on a few other threads; but, I have had no success. The system recovery options shows. Operating System: Windows7 Partition size: 0 Location: (D:) Local Disk The recovery disc did not resolve the boot error. I have checked the bios for boot start up and it's correct. I followed instructions via another website and noticed a partition is listed a Raw. I tried to convert the Raw partition to NTFS. I followed instructions which were via command prompt - Diskpart that showed D as a raw file. I attempted Chkdsk /r /f d: But I got the message ... the type of file NTFS. Unable to determine volume version and state. Chkdsk aborted. Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50. Having read many threads it seems that I need to convert the Raw partition to NTFS. The old drives are a WD 1 TB and a 500G Samsung Sata II The two new drives are WD HDD 1 TB WD Black 7200RPM contain the following: A terabyte drive partioned :C drive and :E drive and a 450MB recovery partition The second terabyte drive has the D drive Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for post being so long. I was trying to be as detailed as possible. Thanks in advance.
For reference, these are the results of the HDDScan And heres a screenshot from windows: I can't seem to see any data on the HDD anymore since its not being recognized as formatted, so there's no way to make a backup! The drive still shows up in Windows Device Manager, but it shows up in Windows as a RAW drive (primary partition), with 2 other unallocated partitions. It was originally formatted as NTFS. I tried booting from Linux Ubuntu but can't see the the drive either. I have already connected it to different machines and on a HDD dock as well. Still the same. What do the HDDScan results mean? Can you recommend troubleshooting and data recovery software/methods? Would running these utilities cause further harm? For fear of damaging the disk further, I have not run chkdsk or testdisk on it yet. Please excuse the newbie question, Is my drive the notorious 7200.11?

Hallo I have searched Google a Little, and found this site, and I can see you are pretty hardcore about drives which are strange.. I have my laptop, and after a update (Windows 8 to 8.1) my computer won´t boot anymore. The strange part is that during the update (i was not at my computer when it was updating, it turned off) When I use Disk Part to reveal my drive, I can see my drive with Windows 8 is now a Raw Drive, and not a NTFS. Can you help me fix that, without formatting the drive? Here is a Logfile from testdisk quick scan. http://www29.zippyshare.com/v/24558047/file.html (somehow I´m not permitted to use THIS site uploader?)
