I did that and reported the outcome in my previous post. No readable data, no boot.

As mentioned I prepared the boot item, booted from it and got the message:
"A disk read error occurred - Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"
What am I supposed to do in BIBM in order to render it bootable and could I try it first without risk to the data?

Cf. the Attachments in my previous posting. They show the result of my trying to have Linux see any recovered data.There aren't any. The information window on /dev/sda3 in the lower part of download/file.php?id=385
offers a lot of error info whose conclusiveness I cannot assess. If it does not give you any clues either because of language problems, I would be glad to offer a translation. Otherwise please instruct me what to do in Linux or TBOSDT.
But the first question for me would be what should be tackled first from a data safety point of view: the bootability or the readability of data. My preference would be the bootability if it is safe to try.
