I tried searching internet for an answer for my problem but turned up with nothing. So that's why I post it here.
Here's my situation:
I have WinXP installed an a 160 GB drive. I wanted to try linux (for the seventh time
) so I decided to install Knoppix on a new drive.
After installation the situation is like this:
Disk 1 (160GB)
Windows (NTFS) - 40 GB
Data1 (NTFS) - 120 GB
Disk 2 (80 GB)
Knoppix (Ext3) - 10 GB
Swap (swap) - 1 GB
Data2 (NTFS) - 69 GB
Everything boots up just fine, all partitions are visible in Knoppix.
my data1 partition, containing all my photo's, music, movies, and other crap disappeared in Windows.
Thank god I found out it was only set to hidden.
So I tried using QTParted to set it active. I succeeded, and rebooted into XP, but it was still hidden. Someone told me to unhide it in Partition Magic, so I purchased it, set it to unhidden, rebooted, and: Still hidden
I have no clue and no idea how to get it to be visible in Windows XP. I use Lilo as bootmanager. My best guess is that lilo sets it hidden at every startup.
Please help me.
Don't make me go back to only WinXP...
