    Well I know you don't want to hear this but IMHO you have hosed your computer. I just done something similar. I was trying to clone my HD to another section of my HD and then I could not use the computer at all.
    It would not accept my recovery CD or an XP disk, Only OS I could install was Linux or use the computer as a door stop.

    Hi unin,
    If you can boot from a CD or DVD you can use a version of Linux called Ubuntu to examine your hard drive to see what's on D, E and F. If there's anything left you can then copy those docs, pictures etc to an external hard drive.
    Guide here: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/17044/move-files-from-a-failing-pc-with-an-ubuntu-live-cd/ there are various stages but clear links & screenshots are included. The version of Ubuntu has changed but the procedures are the same.
    If you can't boot from CD/DVD (no drive?) post back and I'll look for a guide using the same procedures but by booting from a USB stick (flashdrive).

    Neither procedure would install Ubuntu unless you click on the clearly marked "Install" option.

    Hope his helps?

    Richard

    unin...hope you didn't lose anything, but even if your data has been erased, it's not the end...I promise. I know it would seem that way, but it isn't. Might be a rough two weeks or so though...
