"error: no such partition"
I installed Ubuntu 10.--- a few weeks ago, along side of Windows7. Everything has been running great, no issues till today. When I started up my computer before it always gave me the option of which OS I wanted to use. For some reason Windows Vista was an option. I have an Asus, Gamers Republic comp and it came with Windows 7 Pre-installed. Well, I accidentally fell upon the Windows Vista option and pressed enter today. Moving I guess a little faster than I should have. It appeared that vista was loading then all of a sudden a big red ERROR came on my screen. I was unable to do anything so I shut off the comp. Now when I turn on the computer I get:
Error: No Such Parition
I can't seem to do anything there. Every command I know to include "CD:" is not working. I can't seem to get to my BIOS to try to load last known working. I am not sure what to do at all. I've looked at a few other posts, but they seem to be directly referring to Linux/Ubuntu. But, I don't understand why it would be Ubuntu's fault/issue. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
I have loaded Ubuntu straight from the CD. I still have access to all my files on Windows, but I am currently learning Linux and I can't use that as my primary OS. I'm in the army and currently in Afghanistan so internet is scarce and I can't put my PC on the internet. I don't have my windows CD. I have backed up my computer, but using Nortons360 and I can't access it.
