    Messed up partitions


    I installed fedora core 2, but for some reason removed all partitions instead of just linux. I was running Windows XP before. I'm not too concerned with any data I lost, but I would like to get Windows back. I don't mind getting rid of fedora (I can install it RIGHT next time).

    The only problem is when I try to use the recovery disk for the machine, a VPR Matrix, it tells me that I don't have a user partition. When it tries to create one it can't.

    Any help with this problem would be much appreciated.

    maybe the cd of windows can't do anything.i think you can boot your pc with cdrom support (put fedora cd ) and when it says things about partitions you choose what to do with your partitions(you can format them or resize).
    in case this doesnot work try the program qtparted.it's a clone of partition magic for linux.u can find it here:

    good luck!
