Good day to everyone. I hope someone can help me with my problem.
I have a dual boot Windows and Ubuntu system.
I recently encountered an hd0 out of disk error and was not able to boot into Ubuntu. So I booted into Windows, after 2 to 3 times of booting and rebooting into Windows, I tried booting again into Ubuntu but still I get the hd0 out of disk error.
So I decided to run Ubuntu from LIVEUSB to try to fix my Ubuntu partition using GParted, but when I run GParted, it shows my entire disk as UNALLOCATED SPACE!
The strange thing is that Nautilus still shows and mounts my partitions. Also every time I boot into Windows , my partitions exists and I am able to read and write to them.
I have no idea what is wrong. Please help! I can't stand using Windows since most of the tools I use are in Ubuntu. I don't mind reinstalling Ubuntu. In fact I already tried reinstalling using the LIVEUSB but I wasn't able to, since GParted or the Ubuntu installer itself does not recognized my partitions and shows the entire disk as unallocated space.
When I run sudo fdisk -l, here's the output:
In Nautilus, my partitions are recognized and mounted:

In GParted, the whole disk is unallocated space:
In Windows, partitions are recognized and mounted as well:
