need help with partitions
My hard disk consists of 4 partitions C,D,E,F.
Recently I have installed Linux in C:, in which windows was there. Now, when i try to install windows i faced problem with getting the system boot with cd.
I tried to boot with the win98 boot disk. To my surprise, the boot disk misses out C:, and treats D: as C:, E: as D: and so on.
Now, even with this, i tried to install windows. But, after rebooting for continuing the setup, it fails to identify the temporary files and goes into lilo.
Then, I did fdisk /mbr, and again tried to install windows. Now, after restarting, it says "Missing operating system". Now, how to get windows installed? I dont mind formating the (original) c: and d:. Only the other two partitions have data.
Is it possible to restore the partitions without damaging the data so that I can install windows in c:, and linux in d:??
Any other means to install windows as a dual boot is also welcome.
