Fdisk shows 'Unknown' in system
Posted on 2001-06-26
I went to work one morning to see that the PC had frozen. Win 98SE. Had to reboot and system showed No operating system. Booted with win98 boot disk and ran fdisk. The 3 partitions were there but under the heading System each displayed 'UNKNOWN'. Spoke to a friend who said that the partitions had probably sneaked across each other and to try Norton Disk Doctor which I did and it fixed it. Got everything back and installed new HDD and copied data across from old HDD to new one. Now I have a spare
The question is "What could have caused this"? My boss was not impressed with the down time and would like to know so that if it could have been a human messing around with it someone will get there a..e kicked. Not me: someone who works on the night shift.
