Try the following link:
http://www.ontrack.com/easyrecovery/

They have a few options available. As someone already mentioned, you can pay them to recover the data for you. You can also try their software and do it yourself. There is a free version available that will let you recover up to 5 files at a time. You can also pay for the software and recover all of the files at once.
I accidentally FDISKed my own hard drive, and this software saved my butt. Give it a try!

I have had some success with the old Norton Disk Doctor for DOS finding and restoring Partions. I also have used a Mail-Order product Drive Wizard, but that was may years ago and I don't know if that company is still around. Hope that this helps, What I try to do every time I add a drive, is remove any drives I what to keep while doing the upgrade you can add them back to the chain at a later date.

What you are looking for is a program to recover the Master Boot Record MBR. There are several programs out there to do this with. go to WWW.Hotbot.com and search for partition recovery using the exact phrase, I got over 1400 hit. Be aware some of these programs require initial instalation before they will work, but you should be able to find one that will scan the disk and recover it.

That was 72 hits at Hotbot and over 1400 on yahoo.

You can recover it with Ontrack EasyRecovery software. I have used it before--it worked on everything except large jpeg files. See http://www.ontrack.com/easyrecovery/.
