I asked this question earlier. I opted for mearging the Ubuntu partition with the free partition, since I was not sure with the size for /home. Thing went bad GRUB got corrupted, may be because Ubuntu partition UUID was changed due to partition deletion. After googling for some time I got that problem fixed using this post but now I am not able to view my win7 partition in linux.
Here is my Partition table configuration(from gpartd):
Now when I try to mount win7 drive I get following error:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda5 is already mounted on / mount failed
Another problem that I am at loss of 3GB of space on sda5 (ubuntu) partition. gparted is showing its a 35 GB partition but Disk utility shows its a 38 GB partition as shown bellow: Why is it so.How do I recover it.
