ADFS = Apple Dos File System???
There is also an ADFS associated with some RISC system known as "FileCore". I know nothing about it.
If you get a message like that, it makes me think your partition table is chucked, farley. This wouldn't surprise me, given what you describe you have done.
I can take you through the repair procedure, but it is involved and dangerous. You should obtain and carefully review this document:
After you have done so, I need to know if you know your way around any hex editors, and if you have the guts to manually edit your partition table.
Basically, Windows overwrote the grub boot record in the Master Boot record with its own boot record (the "standard" boot record) which is why you lost the capability to boot linux. Your Linux rescue left you with a corrupted boot table and master partition table. You are still running, but you may be progressively corrupting your system and may be on your way to a real mess.
Please obtain all of the following tools:
1. A DOS boot floppy with fdisk on it.
2 MBR-Rescue, which you can get from here:
3. Linux Disk Editor - lde (you should already have this).
4. A Windows boot floppy that you have verified will boot your Windows system
5. A Linux boot floppy that you have verified will boot your Linux system.
6. PartEd, which you can get from here:
7. GPart, which you can obtain from here:
8. You didn't specify which version of Windows you are running, but if it is NT/2000/XP you should also get DiskProbe from here:
You may not need all these tools, but it is best to be prepared. You will also need a handful of floppies.
Don't attempt to use any high level tools on the hard drive (any formatting tools, for instance) until you have been able to do some low level work on it manually to make sure you are not totally f*cked.
You will not fix this problem with any automatic tools; you will have to get "down and dirty" with some manual tools to straighten it out.
It may take awhile, and if you make any critical mistakes along the way you will render your system unbootable. If you are willing to undertake it, I'll show you the way. It will lead to a long thread and will take awhile.
Just keep in mind that the damage to your system may very well be far more serious than it presently appears. You may have a situation where you have overlapping partitions as a result of what has happened; should this be the case you will find yourself low-level formatting and reinstalling everything after awhile, unless you do the manual repair.
I suspect this level of trouble with your system because of the reported presence of ADFS; this clearly states your partition table is hosed.
