I know that my question can be a duplicate, but i spent a lot of time with google and askubuntu, but couldnt find answer.
Ubuntu 13.10 alongside Windows 7 (i had C drive of
100GB and D drive of
200GB). While installing,i allocated 80GB for Ubuntu from D drive. So after installation i couldnt boot into windows. Using tools gparted, Ubuntu Boot repair and testdisk i tried to repair boot but (
as i guess) removed smth important from SDA…
So after restart i have
grub rescue prompt. All partitions are unknown filesystem.
I tried to boot into LiveUSB Ubuntu 13.10 … as i had Windows partition on
sda1, and linux-swap on sda2… and 130GB unallocated memory (as i guess its D drive) … I have a lot of important information on
So how i can recover partition ?
Any help be appriciated!
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
it should detect missing MBR and fix it. it did for me but I do not know if this means it would also restore windows bootability, but that's this app's job so it should.

Boot from a live system, and use the
gpart utility to scan for file systems.
