In my main box, I have two HD'd, a 320 gig and a 160 gig. I had Windows 32 and 64 bit, plus SuSE 10.1 and Kubuntu 64 bit on there.
On the 160 gig I had: 50 GB primary Windows 32 bit partition, 90 GB Windows 32 bit storage partition, and a 20 GB partition for SuSE.
On the 320 gig I had: 180 GB primary Windows 64 bit partition, 140 GB to Kubuntu 64 bit
I planned on restructuring my hard drives to:
The 160: 60 GB for Kubuntu 32 bit, 100 GB Windows 32 bit storage
The 320: All for Windows 32 bit primary partition
When I went into Kubuntu to get rid of my old Linux partitions with QTParted, Windows doesn't want to recognize whatever QTParted does to the drives.
The most space Windows will detect is ~130 GB on my 320 GB drive (before and after an install of Windows 32 bit). I then went into QTParted and resized the drive to all but 12 MB and now Windows says that it is still ~130 GB but the partition type is unknown. I then deleted the partition and just created a new one (I did the same with the 50 GB left on the 160 gig drive). I now get a DISK BOOT FAILURE message (obviously). I then went into QTParted to see what that had to say and it says that on my 320 gig I have a 130 gig partition of type unknown and the rest is listed as free. On the 160 gig, the new partition is also of type unknown - 50 GB.
At this point I am totally lost as to what to do and any help will be greatly appreciated.
