Invalid partition table Error

All hell came lose when i used Hiren's boot disk(or some other partition doctor software ) and so in its diagnostic that there is an error in MBR(but it worked well) so curious to see what happens i selected repair.............

And then i couldn't boot from HD gives Invalid partition table Error............

The thing is i had linux partitions in HD and this software has interpreted it as an error......

Two partition have been marked as active-----------------> this gives Invalid partition table Error



So what did I do


With xp boot disk booted in recovery mode............ :(  then did FIXMBR @ cmd prompt, but it didn't
 work.


Then used from Hiren's boot disk Norton partition doctor ----> diagnostic ------------>repair


And hey all boot errors solved...

no need to format the whole thing and lose all data and make it a mess.....
