This question is similar to others, but none of the answers was conclusive for my case.
I have Windows XP installed on my laptop by default and later on I installed ubuntu 10.10. Grub2 is my bootloader and I can boot into both Windows and Ubuntu.
However, recently I decided to give my Ubuntu partition more space. I opened GParted but it only shows me "unallocated" for my sda drive (only drive in the laptop).
Running System->Administration->Disk-Utility I can see all my partitions
sudo parted -l gives:
Error: Cannot have a partition outside the disk
Yesterday I stared an attempt to fix this, but ended up destroying grub2 which required some reinstall-trickery. I also installed Boot-repair, but it only says something along the lines of:
Use a 64bits version
My system is 32bit, no doubt about it.
Just to complete everything, this is the fdisk output:
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0xdcdcfe52 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 912 7325608+ 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda2 913 10639 78132127+ 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda3 10640 17544 55464381 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda4 17545 19458 15374205 f W95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/sda5 17545 17756 1697860 83 Linux /dev/sda6 17756 19380 13046784 83 Linux /dev/sda7 19380 19458 621560 82 Linux swap / Solaris
(HDD was originally split half and half in a C: and D: drive. I used a part of the C:\ partition to install Ubuntu)
How can I fix my patitions in a way that GParted can find them again?
