Hard disk now displaying "not a valid block device" when booting in rescue mode
I had a working dual boot Windows/SUSE 8.2 system on /dev/sda3 (SCSI).
I went and put a drive on the IDE when in windows and used Fdisk (dos version)to format it. When I rebooted, I have damaged Lilo as it will not reboot in either windows or Linux.
Used the Suse disk1 to go into rescue mode and can log in as root to another kernel. When I create a mount point and try to mount sda3, it says not a valid block device.
Key objective is to save some files from the linux side.
Anyone any ideas, as pretty much a newbie?
