Emergency: No linux Partitions Found
I have Redhat 8.0 and I was tried to repartition my disk with Gnu Parted but I think I fall in a big mistake I changed my ext3 to ext2 and then to fat now I my linux say " Kernel Panic init not found" I was trying to boot from my Rescue linux CD and appear me "no Linux partitions found" please Help me what can I do ?
Creating and formating a partition that has data on it pretty much removes the data from any type of normal access for most computer users.
Zeroing and overwriting makes it even more so (which you would appear NOT to have done yet?).
If you are up on your computer forensics you may be able to find files on the partition with a binary editor, but I have no idea how you would actually recover them that way.
There is E2recover, but I don't know how current this is or if it works with ext3.
You can decide if your files are important enough to fool with this.
