Hello there to you all

The answer wos right in front of me, but I didn't notice it:


the EXT 'ed partition did not NEED to be mounted. I thought that those two disks were the ones I was missing, but in fact they were the hdb's

Disk /dev/hdb: 123.5 GB, 123522416640 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 239340 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 162547 81923436 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hdb2 162547 239334 38700585 7 HPFS/NTFS

So I have mounted the hdb's and all my files are there.

should've used my cane I am blind as a mole.

thank you all for helping out. And for sure, I will NOT go back to windows.

Long live LINUX !

Have a nice day ladies and gentlemen.
