same problem..can't see partitions in Minitool anymore

Hi all,
I have the same problem.
I followed the guide form #41 (applied all the steps separately in Minitool), but it didn't boot at the end, so i used some of #20 tips to recover again..
My PRST1 boots but only has around 38 free memory in /data.
So, i want to format this partition again, but now comes the problem...i can't see my partitions anymore when i connect with Minitool in recoverymode.
I can see the partitions via Putty, but NOT via Minitool or any other Windows-tool.
I managed to get a screenshot from my partition Table and as you can see, there are some errors: Partition 1, 2, 3 and 4 don't end on cylinder boundary.
Maybe this prevents Minitool or Windows to see the partitions in recovery mode?



Can somebody please help me with some tips. I am not a die hard Linux guy, but not afraid to use the terminal. But my knowledge about repartitioning or reparing partitions from within Putty or the command-line is not good enough.
I tried to repartition via the http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST...itioning_Guide , but some commands, like (fdisk) p don't work in Putty, and i have no idea how to do it.

Thanks in advance,
Grt,
Bart
