this afternoon i accidentally deleted the partition (just one lvm) of my laptop.
I was using fdisk to prepare a usb key and for a BIG mistake I have deleted my fedora installation. I have realized that just after reboot...
I use fedora8 (i can't remember well but I think I have followed dvd standard installation)
Now i tried to boot from fedora 8 dvd and rescue cd but they give me "boot failed error" when trying to rescue my system.
With knoppix, fdisk -l
return nothing, on knoppix desktop i can only see hda1 (boot partition) with grub and other few files (kernel and maps). In fact when trying to boot normally i can see grub screen and the choice of kernel, but then i have the "can't find lvm volume" error.
When trying to access hda with fdisk it tells me unable to open hda
please help!!! what can i do? Is there some lvm rescue tool, i'm sure my data are still on the hd, i've "just"
deleted the partition table!!
