Filesystem Type Problem
I'm having a rather bizzare problem. I installed Fedora Core 5 on the primary partition of my laptop. I then installed Windows XP Professional on the second partition (the third partition is a swap partition). However, after installing Windows, GRUB no longer came up. I then used Diskpart from the Windows command prompt to mark my linux partition as active. This failed, and I had to repair my Windows installation to get anything to boot.
Now, when I installed GRUB (using the GRUB-Windows installer), it doesn't recognize my linux partition. Also when I try to update the partition using my Fedora DVD it says that the filesystem is NFTS, yet I never reformated the partition, and both the Windows device manager and the MBR say that the filesystem is still ext3. I'm rather confused, and I really don't want to have to reformat my linux partition. Any ideas about what could be going on?
