Help with HD partioning, I think I hosed my HD trying to install Mepis
Date: Fri, 05 Mar 2004 11:21:57 GMT
I'm new to Mepis and tonight I tried installing it but I think I totally
wrecked my drive trying to partition it. Is there a way to reformat it
from within' the Mepis live CD? I tried repartitioning my XP drive and I
believe it's wiped and the other partitions are hosed and I'm sure wrong.
I have no idea what I'm doing partitioning and yes, I know, I should have
read more. I tried letting Mepis use the entire drive but it won't. I am
so screwed I think. Here is what qparted shows:
Number 01 /dev/hda4 unknown size 0.03mb used space 31.38MB
Number 02 /dev/hda1 fat16 size 31.35mb used space 31.38MB
Number 03 /dev/hda2 ext3 size 25.03GB used space 37.31MB
Number 04 /dev/hda3 extended size 12.20GB
Number 05 /dev/hda-1 free size 12.20GB
Number 06 /dev/hda-1 free size 0.44MB
I have NO IDEA what to do. I'll check this group for any help offered and
would really appreciate any help you can give. I shouldn't have attempted
this yet but I was so excited to try Mepis.
