Disc not visible after installing OpenBSD 5.5 on it

Disc size: 250 GB.

I've created 10 GB partition at the beginning of disc wd1 using OpenBSD installer.

After installation,
fdisk -e wd1
No such file or directory

I've installed sets from ftp, previous installation from CD failed (CD read error)

Are data on disc lost ?

I'm currently dual booting Slackware64 14.1 and OpenBSD 5.5. I used the Slackware install DVD to create my OpenBSD partition; the installer set the partition as type A6.
Here is the last bit of my lilo.conf.

# Linux bootable partition config ends
other = /dev/sda4
label = OpenBSD
table = /dev/sda

Thank you. There were some other partitions (ntfs, ext3) on disc wd1. These partitions aren't visible in gparted anymore. Are these partitions lost ?

SOLVED - data have been recovered using TestDisk
