I'd like to start by saying that I know I'm a gigantic idiot.
So I have two HDDs, C: and F:. My Windows 7 is on a partition on C: and on F: is all of my Steam data and games. I installed ubuntu 12.04 using the installer on the ubuntu site and choose a 20GB sized partition on F: for ubuntu. That all went fine. Next, I choose the "Reboot Now" selection from the installer menu. This is where I messed up, I think.
The reboot was taking a very long time (30-45 minutes). I had no idea what to do. I didn't even get to the main boot menu where you select whether to boot with ubuntu or Windows 7. So I pulled out the battery.
On the second try, everything worked fine. I got to the big purple screen where it just says ubuntu and the five dots for loading (sorry if there's a technical term for this). The leading indicator filled up, and proceeded to take a very long time, again. This, also, may be where I messed up. I thought if I tried again, it might be able to boot properly. So I pulled out the battery.
Now I've been at this stage for awhile: I hit the power button. Four buttons on the keyboard light up, but not the keyboard itself (this is the norm; the whole thing doesn't light up till I log in on windows). The screen has no indication of even being on. It's not a black screen, it's just off. The fans run. No sound occurs. If I want to try again, I have to remove the battery.
Is the only way to fix this to remove my F: drive?
edit: So I just heard the Windows 7 startup sound. I have no diea what to do now.
