(And I mean unbootable in Linux AND Windows XP.) I was trying to install Mandrake’s edition of Linux to be swappable with XP on my HP Windows Media Player PC. Although I tried to be careful about creating the partition on an empty area of the disk, I somehow managed to screw it up. All my data are still there, but I can’t access it. I’d like to be able to restore without reinstalling XP, since that requires reformatting the drive. I’ve tried Partition Commander, Fix-It Utilities 6, and also have a Knoppix DVD that I can boot from.
