I am trying to repair hosed partitions on a Macbook Pro. It has a 500 GB drive and as far as I know, it was a standard install with no Bootcamp. I ran testdisk and it found: EFI System 40 409639 Mac HFS 439566 975533517 I used gdisk to delete and then recreate the partitions as testdisk showed them but it still won't boot. I then tried every other variation I could think of but have not been able to fix it as of yet. I have tried it with another third partition between the ones shown above. I have tried every possible variation of the partition codes being ef00, af00, af05 and ab00. Here's is an example of one of my latest tries: 40 409639 EF00 409640 975503598 AF00 (also tried AF05) 975503599 976773134 AB00 (labeled "Recovery HD") Even with that setup I am still getting a question mark at boot and cannot mount or fsck.hfsplus the partitions. I get an error with fsck.hfsplus saying that there are no hfs signatures. Does this partition table look right? Any idea why fsck.hfsplus isn't happy? Does anybody here on the forum have a 500 GB HD in their Mac and could give me their partitioning so I can match it? All the ones I see on google are setup with Bootcamp and that won't help. Can anybody help? Anybody have any ideas at all for restoring this HDD so that I can rescue files or even boot? Thanks!! P.S. No backups or install media at all.
