Thank you for every help!
Formatted linux partition from windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 6, 2013
My machine is partitioned into windows and linux, I accidentally did a 'quick format' from windows of my linux partition.
When I boot into linux I have access to 'grub rescue'.
Does anyone have advice on how to recover ideally the partition, but alternately my data?
Cannot Boot into New Linux Partition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2013
I recently attempted to install Linux Mint 13 alongside Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Windows 7. The medium that I used to do this was a flash drive that I burned the Mint iso to using
During the installation process, I meant to shrink my Ubuntu partition in order to make room for Mint, but I formatted my Ubuntu partition by accident. Now I cannot boot into Linux Mint, and I have re-installed it several times in order to try different install options. I even tried re-installing Ubuntu to see if it would fix the problem, but it didn't work, and I could not boot Ubuntu either.
The old Ubuntu partition is still listed as a boot option in the BIOS, even though I have tried to delete it. When I choose that option, however, I only get the GRUB rescue screen. When I try
ls (hdx, gptx etc.)
, trying all of the availible partitions, it outputs the message "no such filesystem."
I have also tried using Boot Repair, first with the recommended options,
Linux partition disappeared?

Thank you for your help in advance.
I had edited /boot/grub/menu.lst to have Windows XP as the default OS. There was an update to run in Ubuntu 9.04 and it asked about my edited menu.lst. Without thinking I just clicked on (install main something....) which would basically overwrite it with the default Linux menu.lst... which doesn't include Windows!
So GRUB was booting up but obviously could no longer find the partition to Windows.
So I booted to the windows CD to fix the MBR and now GRUB is gone. I can at least get intow Windows now, but the Linux GRUB options are now gone.
How do I restore the original GRUB menu?
Easiest way to increase linux partition size?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2011
Not so long ago I installed linux on my machine to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10. My original partition size I gave it is looking to be a bit too small as I've been primarily been using Linux lately.
Just wondering what the easiest way is to increase the size of the Linux partition while taking away some space from the Windows partition as it has a lot of unused space.
Thanks in advance
Using partition magic to create Linux partition then install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2002
I've got 2 hard drives right now, a 15 GB with Windows XP (FAT32) and a 60 GB with just files. I just used Partition Magic 7 to create Linux partition and swap file space on my 15 GB drive with XP.
Then I boot of the Red Hat 7.3 cd and when it gets to the "how do you want to partition screen" with disk druid, let Linux do it automatically, and fdisk I go ahead and select "Let Linux partition." After that I get this message:
"Partition table on /tmp/hdb is inconsistent. There are many reasons why. One is that Linux detected Bios Geometry incorrectly. However this is not the case here. It is safe to ignore, but may cause fixable problems with boot loaders and maybe FAT."
I assume hdb is my 60 GB drive? Should I just ahead and click "OK", or should I try disconnecting my 2nd drive for the install?
Thanks for the help.
Deleted linux partition, how to boot Windows partition?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 14, 2005
I have an Intel box on which I previously was running both Linux and Windows. The boot loader that is installed is GRUB. I deleted the Linux partition (accidentally), and now when I reboot the machine Windows does not boot like it used to (Windows was the default OS). Instead, the system comes up with a "grub > " prompt.
How do I boot windows directly from grub? Please help!

Recovery Partition Access / Dual Boot Linux & Windows
I am new to this forum and I really need your help! This is not your typical Linux query but I really need help from someone with more Linux experience than I have. I hope that someone will find this problem interestingly enough to help me out or at least take pity on me. :-) My first couple attempts at loading Ubuntu on a two drive notebook ended badly. The Ubuntu install overwrote the Bootmgr file and left Windows in operable. I was trying load Ubuntu so that I could get back to learning Linux. I need to get proficient in Linux and in Windows for some upcoming certification exams. This issue just got even more complicated due to hardware problem with my new Notebook, see description below.
Background - I recently purchased a Toshiba Notebook (NB)and from day one there were problems. The biggest of which was a defective HDD. After spending a lost of time with their Tech support, I reali
