Ubuntu changed hdd TOC, cannot revert
My Asus AMD64 laptop had a dual boot XP pro corp. and Ubuntu from 2005 running fine. I decided to nuke the drive so I loaded mepis live CD, using the GUI I killed the partitions and formated them as Fat32 for ease. When installing XP the setup saw the full 60G drive, and installed fine. After the setup when in the gui the drive reads as 30gb, with no other partition visible. So I load Mepis Live again, and I can only see 30G. After trying just about everything, different f-disk, different OS, I find that only Ubuntu can see the full 60g. Disk recovery software cannot remedy the problem. Ive even low level formated the drive and still, Ill I see is 30 gigs!
