I may have deleted my windows partition...
 
Hey guys, here's the situation.

500gb hdd with 60gb Lubuntu partition with ext3 fs.
Installed Debian wheezy netinstall from USB.
Told it to wipe and install in the 60gb partition.
It took hours, but said it was wiping sda6, which is the 60gb partition.
Asked me if I wanted to add it to the mbr, but stated that it was now the only operating system.

Has windows been removed from the mbr somehow, or have I actually removed windows?

Cheers in advance

Hi there.

Is Linux still up and running, or if not can you still boot into Linux? If so, you can see what partitions are there by running:
Code:

fdisk -l /dev/sda
or
Code:

parted -l /dev/sda
I hope this helps. If not, post the output from the above command(s) please.

All sorted bro. The first install was plagued with more errors than I cared to solve so I reinstalled. It's detected windows fine =) panic over. Cheers mate
