Hello Leslie,

The short answer is No. And it would need more than a miracle to salvage 
the situation if the partition information is lost.

Sorry if I broke your hopes.

But to look at the brighter side of things :

1) You would never have learnt so quickly so much about 
Windows/FreeBSD/things to do/things not to do had you not run chkdsk
2) Niue is a beautiful country with a great landscape to cheer up even 
the most regrettable scenario
