comment Would like to know the state of my drive / mount
@BadiYee Then, as I said, I'm sorry to inform you that your partitions have been merged and the data removed ... and that it is unlikely to be able to nail down what exactly caused this to happen. Murphy's Law in action.

I'm sorry, I misread and -interpreted the question. Also, in the case of the mount command, you would insert the partition's device file name (dev/sda or something along the line), not the display name, without the brackets. See below for the updated answer.

comment windows 7 not loading after installing ubuntu 12.10
Does it prompt any errors, or does it simply fail to load? If so, what does it display until it stops?

comment Did the upgrade kill my computer, or is this just a horrible coincidence?
That's a good sign at least. While it means it'll take long to finish, it doesn't just jump back to the start. First, I'd try just letting it run until its finished and if that doesn't work, get new hardware. Finding the reason is gonna be slightly hard, though ... Could be anything from a corrupt file loaded into the memory to plain uninduced hardware failure.

Memory checks can take very long. Please verify whether or not it keeps repeating the check, or actually manages to finish it. Also: If possible, try to replace the RAM to see whether it works then. It does look like a hardware failure after all.
