I think you'll get more/better help on that software help page.

As a matter of policy typically we do not solve software issues - this is a hardware "fixit" forum.

There are some software fixes but of a more generic type.

I think you have munged (possibly permanently) your HD's MDB… this does happen occasionally.

If you get your HD back to a single partition I would strongly recommend you use the Apple disk tools to portion and format the drive as Mac OS Extended (journaled) for that machine and OS.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
