    Angry Urgent !!! HELP NEEDED

    I had previously windows 8 installed on my pc. I installed ubuntu 12.10 32 bit on another partition but on same drive.This led my windows 8 not to boot. I , using windows 7 bootable cd formatted the drive on which ubuntu was installed . And now i am stuck at both the OSes not booting. All i have is a live usb of ubuntu but whenever i wanna browse some drive it says unable to mount - not authorized to perform operation. Install ubuntu option on desktop also is not working.pls can someone help me. I have important data on hdd and i dont wanna lose that.

    As short as I know, this problem never erase or touch your data. It is just a bootloader problem. I already experienced this few times.

    Ah, you can use Windows bootable CD for repairing the Windows bootloader. This must be solved your problem.

    Here (http://www.techspot.com/guides/630-windows-8-boot-fix/) is instructions on fixing the Windows 8 MBR. It also includes instructions on how to do this without owning a Windows 8 boot disk by using th 90 day evaluation version. NOTE: I do not have windows 8 so I have no idea whether this will work or not.
