for some reason my boot-loader stopped working and I had to use the recovery disc utility to restore grub.
After reinstalling grub, the windows partitions doesn't appear anymore (on grub and on ubuntu).
I tried to boot an windows installation cd to recover windows, and make some backups, and it says the i cant do that because the disk is locked (whatever that means).
Any help would be much appreciated.
the result of gdisk -l /dev/sda is:
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.0 Partition table scan: MBR: protective BSD: not present APM: not present GPT: present Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.
