Adisak’s paper describes how to restore partition table data (sizes) from a so-generated Windows 10 live-CD, onto an original Windows 7, by opening a file of the output from DriveImage XML 2.50; and if a new HDD and partition table data of it were entered; and if a File Explorer was open in Windows 10 that showed that new HDD, that partition table data and the data in a recovered, but probably in an incorrectly, larger size, the partition table data should be entered into an OSD partition. Or maybe the partition table data might be entered into the EFI partition (if so then would all data be present in that partition); but just a small portion of the partition table data would be entered into the OSD partition, and the remainder of the partition table data, I think, would be in the EFI partition. Later I read about this workaround in another archived article by one of the authors of that article. When I did not change the original partition table of the external HDD, and that partition table of the new, partition table data-entered, HDD, was identical to that of the original, no data was lost on that external HDD. The reason for only entering a small portion of the partition table data, that I think, is that the remainder of the partition table data probably would be in the EFI partition, and the small amount of partition table data that I supposed to be in the OSD partition might be overwritten by the bigger, that I believe, partition table data. So I had to be creative, which I was, to come up with what might have been that creative solution to the problem of restoring partition table data from a so-generated, Live-CD Windows 10 onto an old, original, Windows 7, just that is how I restored the partition table of the external HDD. I have not mastered Linux or Windows, but, luckily, the small amount of partition table data that I entered, I believe, was restored to the partition table of the original, Windows 7, and I did not have to boot from that Live-CD, or my older, original, Windows 7, HDD. For restoring the original, Windows 7’s partition table, and for finding and recovering some data on that original, Windows 7, I succeeded with a Windows 10 Live-CD, with its own version of DriveImage XML 2.50.
In my case, a Windows-10-loaded computer had to have the repair-Windows CD-R and was booted and the Windows-10-loaded computer was on the stage-2 process where a connected external HDD is identified with a logical drive letter. At that time the size of the external HDD in bytes was incorrect for the size of the internal HDD of the Windows-10-loaded computer, and I needed to let DriveImage XML 2.50 see the size of the external HDD and use the size of the external HDD as the size of the new partition on the internal HDD; and also for the size of the new partition to be the size of the internal HDD so that the new partition could be identified as a logical drive letter for the connected external HDD. I tried repairing that internal HDD file system with the repair-Windows CD-R and letting DriveImage XML 2.50 do that, but I couldnt make it happen. So after reading Adisak’s suggestion on this thread to make a second partition table inside the first partition table for fixing a size problem or problems on a HDD of a computer by using Disk Management, I decided to try what Adisak suggested. Because this next post applies to a small, external HDD, my next post will probably apply to a large, external HDD. Probably the sizes in bytes of the external HDD and the sizes in bytes of its logical drive letter for the size of the new partition on the internal HDD of a Windows-10-loaded computer, maybe because of the size of the first partition on the external HDD, is why its size in bytes is not correct for the size of the first partition on the internal HDD of a Windows-10-loaded computer. I determined that was the case in this situation by letting the Windows-10-loaded computer, not on the repair-Windows CD-R, run a Disk Management utility tool. Perhaps you will see if a Disk Management utility tool identifies a logical drive letter for a small, external HDD.
