Re: need help on recovering Windows partition

I have never deleted hd4
It still works and can boot into etch
but can't mount hda2 or hda3
even though they start and end at their old places
It complains:

 FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
 VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev hda2.

I have tried testdisk
It warns that the current number of heads per cylinder is 16, but the
correct value may be 255

Thanks to all those who reply!
