    Operating System not found


    I run, fedora 10, after I rebooted I got a "Operating System Not Found" error. I tried to access my harddrive contents using a live cd, but I can't mount it. Gparted finds it, but says "Logical Volume Is not yet Supported". I have no idea what to do. I just need recover some files, I can do a reinstall after that

    Thank you.

    Boot up from LiveCD and execute this in Terminal :
    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.

    it seems like linux is present on your computer ( on hdc1,2). Did you properly install boot loader at the time of installation??
    try booting from the live cd and mounting /dev/hdc1 and /dev/hdc2 on some directory , you should be able to access the contents.
    Well if I were you I would simply install the boot loader
    Only if I could understand the man pages
