I decided to start playing with Ubuntu after installing SuSe and not really getting on with it.
I was running Ubuntu from the CD and last night I decided to keep it and install it to the HD - when I installed it, I didnt get any messages about partitions etc, so I just assumed that it would create a partition and let me run 2 O/S (Ubuntu for me and Windows for my technophobe other half!).
Once everything was completed and I had messed with a few settings etc, I rebooted and I noticed that the Grub will only boot directly into Ubuntu, with no boot choice for Windows.
I did a bit of searching last night, ran a few commands (I'm quite a Linux n00b so the terminal is still quite foreign to me) and I couldnt find any way of changing the grub.
I also did the partition tool (g-part I think) and it showed up with 3 partitions, although I cannot figure out if any of these are Windows.
I couldnt care less about the Windows install to be honest, but I had ALOT of pictures and memories from over the years (baby being born, first steps etc) and I have never thought about backing up (yeah don't worry I wont make this mistake again!). The problem is that my laptop is an Acer Aspire 3000 series, and I have a terrible feeling that the D (slave) drive that I had all of my pictures on was actually a partition.
I really do have a terrible feeling that I have lost everything, so please please help me to either find out where Windows is, where the files are stored, or how I can perform some kind of HD restore!
Thanks in advance.
