I was messing with Partitions in Windows and somehow my partition table got messed up, and now windows cant boot and when i pop in the CD, it only picks up Partition 1, (the small space windows puts on the side), Partition 3(my storage).. Partition 2 is missing which is the one that contains the windows files
On Ubuntu in Gparted my entire disk is shown as 400something unallocated space, but from the ubuntu file manager i can access each partition including the windows files and see all of my files..Their just
I am using testDisk right now, and its currently analyzing cylinders 31440/60801, 51%, at the rate its going, its gonna take 8 hours, i dont have that long to wait on this..unless i have to.
is their an easier fix??
