    partitions in PC

    my partitions in PC are
    CAPACITY Free %
    (1) unknown volume Partition 102MB 100
    (2) unknown volume Partition 11.72GB 100

    (3)unknown volume Partition 510MB 100

    (4)unknown volume Partition 7.22GB 100

    (5) C: NTFS 19.53GB

    (6) F: NTFS 35.46 GB


    (NOTES: the above four should be Linux partitions. BUT I DO NOT KNOW why 100% free in space??? Does it mean all the linux data file are gone?


    Please help me to solve this problem.

    Thanks a million to you!!!!!!

    Windows doesn't recognize Linux partitions ( Format types ). it shows 100 % Free space only.

    did you try 'linux rescue' as i suggested in post #9?
    type it at 'boot:' prompt.

    no linux partition found

    I have tried according to your instruction to boot from
    CD-ROM with "linux rescue". But after choosing the language and interface network, it just popped up with

    "You do not have any linux partitions, press return to get a shell. The system will reboot automatically when you exit from the shell."


    How to get a shell?? why linux partitions are not recognised?

    thanks again for your sound technical help and great patience.

    press 'Enter key' on getting "no linux partitions" error message.
    this will drop you at 'sh#....' prompt. type 'fdisk -l'.
    see if it throws any error.

    i think something wrong in partition structure. installer couldn't find linux partitions and 'chroot' didn't work. do you have any LiveCD? you can boot from that and check system integrity through 'fdisk -l' command.
