Subject: [gentoo-amd64] How to rescue to lost ext3 partition ??
Date: Tue, 15 Aug 2006 21:41:09
1 hi all ,
2 I tried to resize my gentoo (ext3) partion with the help of "partition magic".
3 everything goes correct but in the completion it gave some error. didn't know exactly what was that. Then i reboot the system and find out that grub was lost and giving error 17.
4 ===========================================
5 error 17
6 This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but the filesystem type cannot be recognized by GRUB.
7 ===========================================
9 Now after some efforts I somehow manage to install grub again with the help of a Gentoo live cd. But I have no clue for how to get back my gentoo partition. Is there any way to rescue that parition??
10 following are some useful info.
11 ===========================================
12 gentoo ext partion is ..../dev/sda13
