is this a single or dual boot system.
may be best under ms windows. either way, do a 'dd' backup of _full_

may be there, should be, but due to 'garbled', you may have trashed

you may need to mount drive in an existing ms system, same 'type' as

use linux from start.
if you have to use msos, do not format 'ntfs'. if trashed, you may
not be able to recover. bg & c planed it that way. ;o)
