During Debian 7.1. installation I accidentally formatted my 60gb logical ext4 partition to LVM. I tried to recover data with testdisk and similar tools but with no success. Testdisk is unable to find correct partition table.

fdisk -l /dev/sda output

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1              63    41945714    20972826    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2        41947134   488396799   223224833    5  Extended
/dev/sda5       362448896   488396799    62973952   83  Linux
/dev/sda6        41947136    49952767     4002816   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda7   *    49954816    57960447     4002816   83  Linux
/dev/sda8        57962496   362442751   152240128   83  Linux

Formatted partition is at /dev/sda5. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks
