Just saved a very messy dual boot system. I had a dual boot, badly implemented, than had the brilliant idea to convert my MBR to GPT. By the end and no access to linux and no access to windows, and about 5 different boot partitions, so you can start imagining the stupid mess i had.

Rescatux solved everything in about 15 minutes, It's a life saver in this situations.

This helped me unlock Windows 7 in minutes, where an account holder had forgotten her password.
