I tried using DiskPart utility in Windows 7 so that I could make my Windows drive as the boot drive( previously i had the drive on which Ubuntu was installed as the boot drive). These are the steps I follwed:
DOS > DISK PART > select disk 0 > list partition > Select partition 3 > Active
The output prior to these statements werent saved and so I am sorry, I can not display it to you. But they were as follows:
p2: 9 GB
p0: 140 GB
P6: 3994 MB
P5: 60 GB.
The same output was shown in the Disk Management window.
But after typing these commands, one of the paritions deleted!! Now the output shows:
Partition ### Type Size Offset
Partition 1 OEM 125 MB 31 KB
Partition 2 Primary 9 GB 126 MB
Partition 3 Primary 148 GB 9 GB
Partition 0 Extended 140 GB 158 GB
Partition 4 Logical 36 GB 158 GB
Partition 7 Logical 40 GB 194 GB
Perhaps Partion 5(p5) is gone!!! The partiton shows a free space!! And this effect was as soon as i typed in "active" command. I am screwd.. That was the most important partition, I had had. All my docs are instores in there.
Please help me retrive back my Partition 5.. :( Is der any way to undo the action?? Please help..
