I got two hard disks, one of 40 GB and another one with 1 TB.
The 40 GB has windows 7 installed on it, taking all the space of this hdd.
The 1 TB disk I got few logical and extended partitions; in this order:
1) Windows 8
2) Microsoft Server 2012
3) Empty storage partition
4) Ubuntu 12.04 precise pangolin
And some empty extended partitions with non partitioned space as well.
However, I put the Solaris 11 Automated install in my DVD, restarted my pc, and booted from this Solaris DVD, then it started to read parameters of my pc, and suddenly started to download the packages. No partitions screen, no way to know what was actually going on (I thought it will show me or AT LEAST select en empty partition or empty space on my second HDD ( 1 TB one)).
Anyway, it started to download packages, and for any reason I stopped the process (it was just starting to download) and after that rebooted my machine.
As I told before, the first 40 GB HDD had windows7 installed on it. Now I can not access this windows 7 installation anymore. I can just access the Ubuntu one, and what's more amusing I can not even see this HDD from system devices in Ubuntu, as i saw on windows 8 rescue system, seems like it's GPT partition right now.
I don't know or i don't think it erased and formatted everything in such a short time.
This automated install just looks for the first disk and erase everything? Being used or not? I don't think so...
I need urgent help with this.
I think that maybe it just overran the MBR or something like that.
Already tried with repair installation from windows 7 DVD but no luck.
Could somebody shed some light upon this?
I hope I've explained myself.
