I was installing ubuntu linux on my hard drive, I partitioned a 1.7 gig section for it, and started installing. I think there is some problem with the partitioning program in the install.. I have an internal HD and an external firewire HD. The internal HD was no longer bootable, I fixed that, the external HD shows up with no partitioning information. In PartitionMagic, both drives show up as BAD. I know for at least the internal HD that it is not bad, I can boot to it and see all of my partitions. I'd like to be able to fix that properly, also, the external HD shows up as bad and I cannot view the files on it. I'd like to restore the partition just as it was with all the files and no data loss. Any suggestions?
