Couple of days ago, I installed Ubuntu 13.10 and I was enjoying it until I wanted to import files from my external hard drive that it suddenly froze for 20 min or so and I forced shutdown my laptop. Right after, when I hit the start, the nice statement
OS not Found
was in front of my eyes.
I tried booting it from usb and even wanted to reinstall it but it said I don't have enough space which I'm sure I have 290GB free!
How can I retrieve Ubuntu?
Is there any chance that my HDD is broke? (I changed the BIOS order to HDD, but nothing's happened.)
when I boot from usb why I cannot access to my HDD? i.e. gparted only shows the usb and nothing else! (I even tried "grub-install /dev/sda" but then it says "path /boot/grub" is not readable by GRUB on boot. Installation is impossible.Aborting."
I'd appreciate any suggestions or help.
