I have 2 ide drives.
hda has 3 partitions dos os2 and a second dos partition.
hdb is going to be linux.
I now know what I did wrong. I ran fdisk on /dev/hda2 when I meant /dev/hdb.
I was rather careless because I did not care what was on the second drive.
- I ran fdisk under os2 and created 3 partitions for linux on drive 2.
- Booted linux and ran fdisk /dev/hda2 (big mistake)
- fdisk reported 3 partitions - lots of warnings about non aligned sectors
- I changed the partitions to linux-native and linux-swap
- setup could not see them (now I know why)
- ran fdisk again on hda2. deleted the three partitions and created 3 new
partitions (aligned to sectors, maybe?)
- setup still can't see them
- I wakeup and realize what I had done.
- I no longer can boot dos or os2.
- What exactly did fdisk do to /dev/hda2?
- Is there any way for me to recover from this or have I completely lost
