My first go at Linux has ended up a disaster! I got mandrake installed ok but when I tried to boot into windows I got errors about missing files. In the end, I had to reformat and reinstall windows. Now ive gone from linux, but no windows to windows but no linux!
My main windows partition is now "J" instead of "C". I can still see the Linux partitions in Partition Magic so they're still there. Why has Linux disappeared? How can I get it back?
Here you can see a screenshot of what im seeing in Partition Magic.. http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~sa1nt/Snap1.jpg
I really need this all done by tonight so I will just have to hope that something goes right in the next two or three hours. I think I need to set the partition as active, but im afraid of doing even more harm and making myself another days work!
