Wrong partition type- how to fix?
I was trying to install WinXP on a 10Gb partition (out of 160Gb) and of course XP decided to claim the entire disk. I stopped it and recovered my data but then Partimage said I had only one partition: NTFS.
So I deleted each partition until I had a completely empty hard drive. I used a System Rescue LiveCD to use gparted to format each new partition as ext3, then restored all my data. No Windows here, just Linux, all partitions ext3.
Then I started Partimage to do a backup and it STILL shows just one partition, NTFS again.
How do I get rid of this? Would be nice if I could just alter the MBR or something and keep all my data, but I'm willing to start all over, as long as the NTFS is finally gone!
