I screwed up this time really badly... let me start at the beginning.
Last night I saw a video of Ubuntu and I'd always wanted to try Linux so I decided to get partition magic and partition off some data for a linux OS. I made the partition specifically for Linux with a Linux file system and everything. Now.. it said that I had to activate the Linux partition in order to install Linux onto it. So I set the linux partition as active and (deactivating the current one at the same time) so that I could install Linux to it... Well I used a CD to boot into Linux which is where I am now.. but it won't let me install Linux to that particular partition. I have no idea why but it will only let me do it if it it partitions itself.. it also doesn't seem to recognize my RAID configuration which is even more of a problem. So when it didn't work.. I crossed my fingers and restarted but alas.. "Error loading operating system" so I restarted again and booted into Linux again and tried various things.. I tried to use the rescue disk that partition magic created but it gets a critical error when I run it.. I guess one of the disks was bad or something.
Right now I'm getting a friend to install partition magic and make his own rescue disk and then he can send the files to me via email so that I can make a new boot disk that will hopefully work.. but since I'm not sure if that will work either.. I downloaded bootmagic rescue disk that I can't get to work and I don't know why.. I guess because it's .exe.. but I don't see why it wouldn't run right from startup like it should.
Do you ever have those time where you wish you could just rewind and undo something STUPID?
I need help so badly.. if anyone ANYONE knows of a way that I can reactivate my windows partition... that would be... SO..SO SO SO MUCH APPRECIATED...
I will be rebooting with a new disk that I just made and if that doesn't work.. I'll be waiting here for replies...I doubt it will work though..
