I'm working on a laptop for a friend. His laptop has a 64GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. Recently the laptop just stopped booting, and I determined that the partition table was wiped somehow. I can't repair it, however. Testdisk discovers two partitions on the SSD, as it should (a boot partition and the data partition), but it errors out and says that the data partition cannot be added.

 

I've attached the testdisk log file. Any advice? What can I do to fix his partition table? Using bootrec from a Windows boot disc finds no Windows installations and thus fails.

I wonder if it is a Hybrid drive (SSHD). Is it?

That's actually a really good question, but I can't find any information on this model. It's a Lenovo Ideapad Y570, and since it's not sold anymore Lenovo has very little information on its site.

 

After opening it up, I can verify that they are two separate drives--an HDD and an SSD.
