Dual boot but save Recovery Parition T30
Hi. I had to do a System Reset yesterday which meant restoring my laptop to factory preset. I also had cloned an HD before that to a faster drive. The old installation of Ibex was my first and in my haste to install it I did not read the fine print on how not to overwrite the MBR!
Needless to say I winded up destroying my Rescue and Recovery Partition. A friend of mine sent me copies (4 CD's) to restore my comp which meant wiping out everything on the HD. Now that it's up and running great I'd like to install Jaunty and keep my Rescue and Recovery partition (press F11 for restore at startup).
I don't want to erase the MBR like last time!!! It took me from noon to bedtime last night to replace and configure the XP to a somewhat decent state! I already have an fdisk -l report but it's from a liveCD run of Jaunty. Here it is:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
240 heads, 63 sectors/track, 10337 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 = 7741440 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xa266a266
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 10107 76408888+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 10108 10337 1738800 1c Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)
How do I begin to install Jaunty? I have a bunch of ISO's I burned that include Gparted Live 0.4.5.2, Super Grub Disk 0.9797, System Rescue CD 1.2.0, Clonezilla (won't be needing that one), and have all three distros of Ubuntu starting from 8.04. I'd like to have a partition for Windows, Ubuntu, and a shared FAT32 folder for music, videos, etc.
