I am using ubuntu 13.04 on my HP-Probook core i-3 laptop from 7 days earlier. There was 6 partitions. One for ubuntu 13.04(Ex-4), others are in NTFS. Today suddenly it hang-upped. After restarting it showed that, there is no OS. So am trying to reinstall Ubuntu 13.04 by a bootable pendrive. At first I select a option to try ubuntu without installing. Then from desktop to install Ubuntu 13.04 it said:
"The installer has detected that the following disks have mounted partitions
Do you want the installer to try to unmount the partitions on these disks before continuing? If you leave them mounted, you will not be able to create, delete, or resize partitions on these disks, but you may be able to install to existing partitions there"
I click to YES. And it continued. Then I select a option that was:
"Erase ubuntu 13.04 and reinstall
warning: This will delete all your Ubuntu 13.04 programs, documents, photos, musics and any other files"
I thought it will delete only the drive where was Ubuntu system file. And click to install. After few secods it wants to write user details. So I didn't missed this step also. After filled up and continued to the next and its working. In that time I felt that its not wanted to select drive, so it was again taken mistake which was held in 2 years ego with ubuntu 10.10, where my harddisk fully formatted and I lost all data.
Instantly I eject the pendrive and restart the Laptop. Again try ubuntu without installing But I found that 500 GB harddisk are in 498 GB file system with no partition and some installation files were copied there.Now I totally turn off the laptop
There was very iumportant data of my 4 year study related. But I don’t want to loss those. Now what can I do………….???
