A few days ago I downloaded the Elastix 1.0 and burned it on a CD.

To see if the Elastix CD was ok, I booted my Kubuntu pc with it.
I only did a few steps during the installation. To the point were the systems asks for keyboard type (can't remember exactly). At least I stopped long before the systems should start the installation on the harddisk.

When I had rebooted the pc (without the Elastix cd), the system couldn't come up again. I got GRUB error 22.

No harm done, I thought, because all my important files are on harddisk2 (hdb) and harddisk3 (hdd), so I reinstalled Kubuntu again. (on hda)

However....to my big surprise, I couldn't mount hdb and hdd anymore :(

It looks like that all the 2 harddisks are empty. Can't find any parttions on any of the two disks. Even my USB stick was unreadable.

Can somebody confirm if the harddisk data is really lost ?
If not, is there a way to retrieve my data files ?

I was really surprised to find myself in this situation, since the Elastix had not started the physical installation.

With the program Testdisk from http://www.testdisk.org, I was able to restore ALL my lost partitions. :lol:

So I got ALL my data back again.<br><br>Post edited by: henkoegema, at: 2008/05/14 19:01

Nice!
This is good to know.
I had the same problem, but the data wasn't important, so I didn't mind.
