Recovering lost partition table?
I've been searching for hours for solution on this, but no luck. I was trying to install Gentoo on my system shared by a Windows XP (was planning to test it out first). However, at the partitioning step, the option was confusing that I accidentally deleted the partitions on the drive. I immediately stopped everything and shut it down hopefully to find a solution online. I know I can reinstall Windows and I do have backups of my data, but installing all my favorite applications and resetting the configuration for all of them is a pain in the neck. i understand that what the system did was just modifying the parition table, without actually destroying the data. Can someone lead me to resolve this crisis of mine? Thanks so much!
