    Question Entire Disk Unallocated. Please Help (Mint)


    Hello,
    I was trying to install "Mageia Linux" on my computer and it worked. But my filesystem looked odd. My partition I use for storing files and my Windows 7 partition were grouped together. Then there was my Linux Mint then the 3 partitions for Mageia. I found this odd and put the MBR back to normal and now I'm getting this in GParted.

    In windows, all the different partitions appear but as one huge extended partition. Please can someone tell me how to fix this I've never experieced this problem.

    It's pretty difficult to read your image. The only thing I could see is unallocated which isn't good news. Do you have more than one hard drive?

    But my filesystem looked odd.
    Odd how? More details. What does 'grouped together' mean? Are you now able to boot Mageia or Mint or a Live CD?

    What exactly do you mean by this? Correct me if I am wrong but if you somehow messed up your MBR then your system would not know where the partitions are and it might all show up as unallocated.
