Thanks to all of you for the support. I managed to access ntfs partition (sda4) through Puppy Linux. I took the backup on second hdd's ntfs partition. Now on second hdd, I'm having dual boot (F14 + XP). So now I can format original partition (on hdd1) to ext4.

You must be root to run this commands!
alfredo

example with sda1:
as root:
~ # mkdir /media/SDA1
~ # mount /dev/sda1 /media/SDA1
~ # mount
...
/dev/sda1 on /media/SDA1 type vfat (rw)
~ #
I am using dual boot win 7 ultimate with fedora 14 kde spin

If you have dual boot then why dont you format it from XP it will help you to mount drive through F14 and same u can use it in windows as well....
