partition magic ouchy!
Big problem(me thinks anyway).
Situation: created partitions on a 20G HD as follows.
1. first 5G win98 C:
2. next 3G linux(+swap) hde6
3. next 2G fat32 D:
4. next 2G linux ext2 hde8
did this using partition magic ( i know, i know). Anyway, I decided to extend my linux hde6 partition, soooo, I deleted the fat32 D: partition and extended my hde6 another 2G. Now for the problem.
When I deleted the fat32 D: partition, partition magic rewrote my partition table and changed my second linux partition to hde7 (vs hde8). So now when I boot up linux doesn't recognize hde7 and has a problem recognizing hde8 since it doesn't exist anymore (bad superblock and 0 block errors). Is there anyway to edit the partition table or edit my boot files. As of now, i can only enter in single-user mode with read only options so i can't rewrite any files. Anyhow any help would be greatly appreciated.
