I had on my laptop a dual system (Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7) and someway the partitions messed-up. Windows stopped from booting, I just got a blinking cursor, but Ubuntu worked fine. I tried to fix the windows boot (fixmbr, fixboot, bootsect /nt60 C:/....) but now grub was overwritten and I have no OS. Finally I formatted the hdd (low format), installed Windows, partition hdd with paragon partition manager and now I want to install Ubuntu, but Ubuntu sees an empty hdd, weird, can anyone tell me what can I do?
I have created:
partition 1: 100MB ntfs - windows reserved (drive B)
partition 2: 50GB ntfs win 7 (drive C)
partition 3: 50GB ext3 linux
partition 4: 'the rest' ntfs for data (drive E)
(the swap i will create after)
