Try gpart from
Description: Guess PC disk partition table, find lost partitions
Gpart is a tool which tries to guess the primary partition table of a
PC-type disk in case the primary partition table in sector 0 is
damaged, incorrect or deleted.
It is also good at finding and listing the types, locations, and
sizes of inadvertently-deleted partitions, both primary and logical.
It gives you the information you need to manually re-create them
(using fdisk, cfdisk, sfdisk, etc.).
The guessed table can also be written to a file or (if you firmly
believe the guessed table is entirely correct) directly to a disk
Maybe that'll take care of it.
