The idea was to install Win 7 and Ubuntu with dual boot.
However, after installation, Gparted shows a /dev/sda1 as an 'unknown' filesystem and its size is 278 GB. All my windows files, data are in this partition.
THen, there's /dev/sda2 with 'EXT4' filesystem (size-9.54 GB) - created during Ubuntu install.
Then, there's /dev/sda3 with 'extended' filesystem (size- 10.5 GB) - created during Ubuntu install.
Then, there's /dev/sda5 with 'linux swap' filesystem (size- 2 GB) - created during Ubuntu install.
Then, there's /dev/sda6 with 'ext4' filesystem (size- 8.5 GB) - created during Ubuntu install.
MY questions are:
What exactly does this Gparted output above mean?
How to recover my previous Windows 7 installation that's in /dev/sda1 (NTFS). I have some important files I need.
- Also, I had a PGP encryption on the disk before installing Ubuntu. Now, it just boots straight into Ubuntu... why?
How to uninstall Ubuntu (the Try ubuntu and uninstall did not work. the boot-repair did not work)
I have read other topics but noone has provided a proper step by step answer to how to recover my 278GB WIndows partition.
The testdisk step by step procedure did not work. It says the NTFS disk is unrecognized.
