Please do not bump your thread more often than every 24 hours or so.

Are you sure you didn't format the entire drive when you installed Ubuntu?

What, exactly did you do during the installation. Is this a wubi install or a full one.

Run on a ubuntu live cd this command and post it. If you have erased anything you have to stop using that HD if you want to recover anything.


sudo fdisk -lThis l is a small L

To make a partition or it asked you how much space you want to allocate to wubi? There is a difference.

If it only allocates 75GB it will create a folder with that size, it will not create new partitions.

In any case, as wilee said, run the cd in live mode (if you don't have ubuntu cd make one), and post the result of the command he posted.

Hi,
you should go with the suggestions made by wilee-nilee and darkod before doing anything else.

If you do get a LiveCD/USB going then I also recommend you run the boot info script and post the results here.

There is a link at the bottom of my post with instructions.

Thanks.
