If you formatted the drive, you deleted everything. At least deleted the address tables to access information which, for the average user is the same thing. What was your intention in formatting? Re-install?

yancek,

i wanted to reinstall but i got it to work eventually. I now realise that if i format, grub the bootloader will be looking for a linux entry that is not there. Thanks anyway
