Re: Badly need help
It may be as simple as the filesystem type in the MBR has been changed. (I
once had a situation with a Windows/Linux dual boot where LILO made my
second and third windows partitions 'hidden', by changing two bits in the
MBR...). You could use a tool like Winhex to look at the MBR and see what
the filesystem types are given as. (You will need a reference of course).
