Short story: I deleted the only primary partition
in my external hard-drive, and now the OS
(Windows XP/Ubuntu Linux) won't load the
drive, or the other (logical) partitions in it.
Long story: This disk used to be the SATA
internal hard drive for my laptop. It had a
primary NTFS partition and a NTFS logical
partition. I put an adapter to turn it into an
external hard-drive for another computer, and it
worked perfectly. Today I deleted the primary
partition (it used to have Windows, Program
Files, ... which I don't need). And now it just
won't load. Neither Windows nor Linux will
recognize the hard drive when I plug it in. It
does not appear in the Windows Disk
Management tool, or in Partition Magic, or in
Ubuntu's Partition Manager.
Anyone can think of some solution here?
