I recently had to re-install Windows XP on an old Dell Dimension 2400 desktop. Before the re-install, I had it double-booting Windows XP and Ubuntu.
After the re-install, I can’t find Ubuntu or the partition it’s in. I’ve even tried Partition Magic, G-Parted, and Partition Wizard live CDs. Also tried Eaesus Partition Master Pro. The Ubuntu partition is not recognized by any of them, it’s like that partition does not exist.
Is there any way to recover it short of deleting all partitions and doing a clean install?
