Converted disk to dynamic by accident... :(
I have 2 operating systems installed on my computer: Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10
When I was trying to create a new partition, I accidentally converted the main disk into a dynamic one and now it doesn't want to boot: it crashed at the GRUB and restarts the computer automatically.
I tried to revert back the partition codes from 0x42 to 0x07 for NTFS and 0x83 for linux but GRUB still crashes.
I don't really care that much about the linux partition, but I want to recuperate my main windows partition. I tried the Windows Repair from the CD but it doesn't detect any problems.
I don't really feel like backing up the whole system, formating the disks and all cuz I don't even have a spare HD for that.
Is there any other way around the problem?
Right now I only have access to ubuntu 9.10 in livecd mode.

Anyway, I'm glad you get it fixed and got your data back. Chalk this up to one more reason to use a VM rather than a multi-boot system, especially if you don't like to mess with partitions.
