Everything was working fine w/ Ubuntu and Windows as a dual boot until the IT guy touched it.
My original configuration was
DELL INSPIRON 6400
Centrino Duo 2.0Ghz
Ubuntu 25 GB
He had to change my domain on Windows so after removing the domain he forgot to reset the Administrator password and he or I couldn't log into the laptop. So after many attempts going through linux bootable cd's to reset the password we had to format the computer.
Anyway, I finally got my computer back and ubuntu is missing. So I assume he formatted the whole drive. But when I go into Windows it only reports a total of 55 GB and not 80GB.
I load the Ubuntu live cd and fdisk -l and it notices only the 55GB partition. What happened to the 25GB that ubuntu was installed on ?
I know he didn't switch out my drive, so where do you think it is and how can I restore it either through windows or ubuntu. Because I really want to reinstall ubuntu and I definitely can't install it on a total 55GB hard drive (too little space for work and ubuntu).
