I'm verry new to linux and i messed up my partitions.
Here's what i did:
I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop on the following partitions:
/ - 10 GB
swap - 1 GB
i left 10 GB free space because i wanted to install windows there after that
the rest of the hard drive - one big NTFS partition
When i tried to boot a win XP CD it gave an error - NTLDR missing, i tried a NTLDR fixer but didn't help. Next i used a partitionner from a live CD and i formatted the 10 GB that i previousley left free to a NTFS partition. The program told me to reboot and after that i boot with win XP CD that worked this time but when i tried to tell windows where to install it said it needs to write MBR and after that my system froze. Ofcourse nothing works since then. I'm now on ubuntu live from mai flash drive.
I ran gparted but it only displays one big unallocated disk.
I allso tried the following: boot from win xp CD and in Recovery Console
but here what was the output :
FIXBOOT cannot find the system drive, or the drive specified is not valid.
Can u pls help me recover my lost partitions or at least salvage the data from the NTFS partition.
Thx in advance!
