I installed Ubuntu to dual boot with Windows 7 64-bit on another laptop of mine and encountered a problem. Here is what happened:
I shrunk the Windows partition to create space for Ubuntu I ran through a basic setup of Ubuntu and pointed it the newly created partition After the installation completed everything seemed to be fine and working However, when I tried booting back into windows it wouldn't let me.
I looked around and tried a bunch of things (including using the Windows installation CD to repair the partition with no luck). I saw that when I did
fdisk -l in the terminal the Windows partition was no longer NTFS format but SFS...
My Windows files and everything seem to be intact when viewing from Ubunutu but I cannot boot into Windows and it seems to be because Windows cannot mount/read SFS.
My questions are: how did this happen, what is SFS and can I resolve this without formatting that partition?
