Topic: gparted does not see partitions - but WinXP does
Hi everybody. These topics are all new to me, so hopefully, I get the terms right.
Well, currently, GParted (0.4.6) sees my hd unpartitioned, i.e., there is no single partition on it. But WinXP starts without problems - and it sees the expected partitions. Let me explain:
I had a dual boot installation: WinXP in the primary partition (on the left end), some other partitions in the extended one (on the right) with Linux.
Then I formatted the primary partition with NTFS and made it smaller. I enlarged the extended one accordingly. Then I re-installed Windows XP and chose the primary partition.
Now Windows starts and it shows me the partitions correctly: They are of right size and order, although it calls them "unknown". But GParted does not even find the primary partition.
What is wrong?
