Hey Scifolk! Yes I've been absent for a long time. An lot of life happened to me since my last post. All good too I swear! Anyway, to the point of the thread: I was trying to set up a dual boot on my windows pc for Debian Linux. All was running smoothly, and I had everything as I wanted it. But I couldn't get Debian to connect to my wireless chip. I decided to reinstall debain, so I went in to windows and re-merged the debian partition into my C: drive. When I restarted my computer, it just get a black screen that says "error: partition not found" then something about entering grub rescue. It has a command prompt and I googled how to fix things from this prompt, but it was so hosed that even those commands resulted in errors. No biggy, I have all my data backed up and didn't have any important apps or programs installed on my windows side of things. At any rate, I've even tried booting into a USB with windows recovery media and the linux recovery, and it wont even do that. I've tried pushing F2, which usually puts me into my BIOS but it wont even do that. Just goes straight to the grub error. So I've got two question: Is it too far gone to just repair my windows install? I can see that it is still there because I removed the hard drive and have it hooked to my wifes computer with an SATA wire. If this isnt possible, is it possible to fix it from my wifes computer, or reinstall windows with with the SATA wire? Thanks to anyone who can help!
