Disk Read Error Occurred. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart"

I was merging partitions using partition magic and after everything was done I rebooted and got this error.
Disk Read Error Occurred. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart"

I can't even see the drive when I add it as a secondary. Any dieas, please help.

If you can add it as a secondary, you may be able to recover the original partition table.

This is going to take some work though.  What operating system?

And don't partition it or allow it to be recognised by Windows until you've thought about this problem.

and they actually charge for partition magic . . .
Since u r using parition magic, u can do a error check using it. btw, did u set ure primary partition as active?
I will assume u r using a licensed copy of partition magic over here... ;)
