So I was attempting an install of a linux distro called Fedora via an install dvd... The set-up went fine until I was unable to use free space on my hard drive for the install. I tried a few of the different options for partitioning the disk, such as erasing linux partitions (which i did not have) using free space, and shrinking other partions, but to no avail. I decided to boot back into windows in order to create the needed partitions, but when I did, I got a BSOD with Unmountable boot volume error.
Even more weird, when I booted into the recovery disc for Windows 7, it found Windows on a 0 megabyte D partition, which I never created. I tried multiple things, such as the start up recovery, the disk check, and the system restore (which came up with an error saying that no restore points were found), none of which were able to resolve the issue.
At this point I am at a loss for what I can do besides reinstalling windows, which I would really like to avoid.
Thank you in advance
P.S. I am currently running off a live ubuntu DVD
