Somebody unplugged my laptop yesterday and the battery
So I plugged it back in and reboot, "No operating
So I started up the Fedora Core 3 rescue cd and found
I couldn't mount any partitions.
Running parted showed me I have no partition table
anymore. Damn, if only I had backed up the old one. So
I started trying to rebuild the table.
I knew there where 8 partitions in total. But here is
the wierd thing, I didn't know what disk label type to
use, so I have tryed both msdos and bsd.
I get a different list of Partitions when using each
type but I can't get all the partitions at any one
time. The machine had Fedora Core 3 which was dual
booting Redhat 9. I don't care about redhat 9 anymore
and with the disk label set to msdos I can recover the
boot and root partitions of my Core 3 install, but not
the swap. The boot and root are the first two
partitions on the disk.
So I am wondering is there a better tool out there for
rebuilding the partition table or should I make a new
swap partition and reinstall grub?
Thanks in advance,
