    Hi jassengabriel,
    Welcome to Linux forums!

    It will be better if you start a new thread and out your query as this will get the attention of all the other members easily.

    About your doubt... i am not very sure of the same! but you can use a linux installation CD and type the following command at boot prompt.
    linux rescue
    after this type
    fdisk -l
    and post the content on the new thread.
    Linux Rocks!!!!
