I installed ubuntu quite some time ago (shortly after the official release of 8.04 after having run on the beta)
the other day I decided that I'd quite like to play some of my games and so stupidly decided to install a WINDOWS *spit* partition. but I fear that ALL of my ubuntu data is lost,
I didn't install over ubuntu, I resized the ubunut partition from 120GB (ish) to 30 so I could install an 80GB Windows XP partition (because windows games take up more space than most of my ubuntu stuff.
now, I can boot windows, but when I try to boot ubuntu I'm given the message "Problem with operating system" on the second boot screen on my machine. I haven't re-sized the partition to be any smaller than what space it uses, it has twice the amount of space that it used.
does anyone know if there's any way that I can get it back? I have the ubuntu disk, G-parted and the windows XP *spit* disk and am more than willing to download and burn any other that may be needed.
thanks in advance.
