So, here's the deal. I had Vista/Ubuntu dual booted and I decided to do a fresh Win 7 install over the Vista Partition. I did custom install and I'm quite sure I chose the the Windows Vista partition to install over. Well, everything went fine and Win 7 is running OK, but how do I get into Ubuntu now? It used to give me a choice upon booting up? Did Windows wipe my entire drive?
I'm confused because this is a 250GB hard drive, and it's showing 225GB on the C drive. I believe my Ubuntu partition was only about 20GB, but idk if 5GB leaves enough room for the Win 7 OS. Probably not, huh?
The good news is I still have the Windows.old files, so from what I read I can restore. Not to mention that the Ubuntu partition didn't really have anything too important on it, so if that's lost well, sucks, but OK. Music mostly, everything important went into Dropbox.
So, can someone tell me what happened here, and if there's any way to fix it, or get those files from the Ubuntu partition back? Thanks.
