what happened was on my one is i did made a 7 gig of partition for linux and i was trying to make a dual boot with winxp pro by installing mandrake 10. everything went very well and as well as booting but then i did not like the madrakes boot loader and i thought only way to remove this would be booting in windows and deleting the partition.... and also it was keep saying that i have a boot virus on my pc..... and i am sure that i don't have...... guest what then.... i did delete the partition and then i try to re boot but however this time i could not even boot on to any OS !! ! ! !! !
can you Imagen how do i feel. i did not have any 2nd PC for me to boot it on that that as a slave and try to back up the data but for get it.. i had to do a hard format which means i had to erase everything. don't ask me about back ups because they did not work either. i have lost about 50GB of data in 45 min.... whole my school assigmnet my coursework and whole other staff are gone. and now i can not even recover my files back to life.
but guys i am not giving up i am going to learn this linux....even if i do have to format my PC as many distros as we have for linux........ now is there any linux version that don't have a boot loader because i know that windows itself has got boot loader.???????
now i am either going to buy a 10 GB HDD and install linux on that or got to find a linux distro that don't have about loader... guys please help me out on this i really don't know what to do up here.........
