    bootup with LiveCD and use pendrive to backup your data.
    Never make any misteaks.

    Boot up from any LiveCD, open Terminal/Konsole and execute this
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    or
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    Post output here.

    * Its small L in fdisk -l.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
