I created an extended partition and tried to add two NTFS units to it. Instead two 125 GB partitions, I got – according to Disk Utility – 2 X 982 GB partitions plus a 14574534 TB one (wahey!). I don't remember to have done anything weird.
The case is:
Neither Disk Utility, GParted or fdisk will let me fix/delete the extended partition, and in addition,
My LiveCD won't boot, although the BIOS order is correct and it worked perfectly before Ubuntu was installed. The hard drive installation of Ubuntu will start instead (edit – I got it to boot but having the drive unmounted does not fix the issue).
I guess I could try even more tools but I don't think this is that much of an unusual problem... what's the straight-forward solution for this?
Thank you in advance.
