Hello, I wanted to install Ubuntu Linux on my laptop for a while, I finnally decided to and so I arranged my disk with Partition Magic to install it. It was the biggest error. :dead: I left 8,5 Gb for the Linux ext3(ext2 by Ubuntu install?) and 620 Mb for the Swap(what's that anyway? It was recommended...). I did all I needed for my drive then rebooted windows and set the new Linux partition as active(thought I had to do it) to install it. Ubuntu works well and all... but Windows won't start, after the boot screen, it tries to run chkdisk or something like that and after it shows a dark blue screen with some error on it(I can specifiy). What do I need to do to set the Windows partition as active and STILL be able to run GRUB? I can always reformat, I just did it and kept my backup on my parents' comp, will lose SOME files. But since it'll be the 3rd time in 7 days... I don't feel like it... EDIT: Forgot to mention that I can't see the partition on BartPE and PartitionDiskDoctor does not recognize my partition table and when I try to rebuild it, it only finds the Swap partition.
