    Hello all, I am having problems trying to accesse my partition. I have had to install a new operating system on a new partition as the old one had trouble starting up. I am currently running TestDisk to see if anything happens. The problem started when I was reverting back to Windows7 from Windows8 by using the partition manager in Windows8 to mark the Windows7 partition as active in order to boot it. One rebooted the 'Starting Windows' would do its business then suddendly a blank screen would follow with me only able to move the mouse.

    Please see my screenshots to see what is up. I really do not want to have to resort to having to format this partition as it has uni work on it.

    Note: I have changed the Windows7 old system to Windows789
