URGENT, can't boot window after deleting ubuntu partitions and some mess up
Yesterday, I tried to delete ubuntu 7.04 partition by using disk management in vista.
After that, I got the GRUB error 17 message.Then I check in internet for solutions, and some how, I got my partition which is vista os "wear" the mask linux.
My fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 863 6928384 27 Unknown
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2 * 863 19237 147590999 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 19238 19457 1767150 5 Extended
Today, I finally got the solution for the grub error 17, and it works. However, my latop got another issue. When I boot my vista, chkdsk doesn't run. After 3 seconds, my laptop restart, and the problem with chkdsk repeat.
Please do not use "urgent" in your thread titles. What is urgent for you is not urgent for anyone else. Putting such words in your title will not get help to you any faster. From what you have said, I would guess your solution will come from the Vista side rather than the Linux side. I hope you have a Vista resue disk of some kind. That is probably were your solution lies, if there is a solution. You might also try posting on some of the Vista forums to see what people have done in similar situations.
I burned the recovery cd, and booted it. However, for some reason, startup repair can't repair my problem and recommend me to send the problem back to microsoft.
Diagnosis and repair log
Number of repair attempts: 4
System Disk = \Device\Harddisk0
Window directory = \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows
AutoChk Run = 0
Number of root causes = 1
I tried to use prompt to input the BootRec.exe command. The result is
*With /FixMbr : The repair works, but it doesn't solve my problem.
*With /FixBoot : The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are leaded and that the volume is not corrupted.
*With /ScanOS : Total identified windows installations : 0 (My guess is that my early messed up make window "wear" the mask linux)
*With /RebuildBcd : Total identified windows installations : 0
Each partition type has a number assigned to it. For the most part, the hex codes of the partition ID's are unique. In some cases, there are conflicts - Solaris partitions and Linux swap share the same ID. If unsure of the Partition ID, use “L” to check. As you can see, fdisk supports a wide variety of partitions from FAT to BSD to BEOS. We select 82 for Linux swap.
Go through the article again -- and this time, select the Hex code corresponding to NTFS ( (or whichever partition type you think Vista is installed on)from the list - by typing L) and go ahead.
