    Testdisk did the trick. I just ran the 'analyze' operation, committed the suggested changes and restarted and then the partitioner worked fine. My NTFS partitions full of data were undisturbed.


    For anyone else wanting to try this solution, take note: testdisk isn't installed on the Ubuntu live-cd. However the program is fairly light-weight so if you enable the universe repository on a live-cd you can install it in the live environment. That's what I did and it worked fine. Note that other live/rescue cds do come with testdisk installed, but this solution is probably still faster if you already have an Ubuntu cd on hand.


    Thanks for the advice everybody. Case closed!
