Major problem..partitioning/dual boot gone horribly wrong
ok..i have windows XP with a 100GB HD. I ordered a livedvd version of suse linux 10. i have a 3.5gb section on my HD dedicated to the restore function for windows xp, and i was partitioning the other 85GB or so into 35GB windows, and the rest for linux. well, while it was going to work doing its thing, my power went out..of course, everything went wrong. i restarted..well..windows wouldnt go farther than the windows XP screen before it flashed a blue screen for a very short split second and restarts. i tried using the restore option, but when i try to do a non-destructive restore, but it wont let me. it says reformat only. well this isnt really an option considering i have 15GB of important files and a dialup connection. well, i received my dvd today with suse on it, started it up, all that jazz, and i try to go into my files thru linux, but it says dev/hda1 is not accessable in "etc/....". Is there ANYTHING i can do to save my precious files?
