As I told in a previous question, I was having GRUB problems with a dual boot PC with both Lubuntu and Bodhi Linux. One of the partitions (the one with Bodhi Linux) was messing with the GRUB entries, polluting the GRUB.
I have SATA Western Digital 120GB 5 yeras old hard drive. There are four primary partitions. In order FAT-32, JFS, EXT4 and the last SWAP. Yesterday I copied the third ext4 partition with Clonezilla. Everything was OK. But Clonezilla issued therey strange for me message (and upsetting): "Hidden data between MBR and first partition" It was about 32KB.
I am a newbie using kubuntu 13.10 & not at all comfortable using fdisk unless I'm given specific instructions. Is it possible to fix the table entries without incuring major surgery on my partitions?
Would appreciate explicit advice.

I am using Debian Linux Squeeze. My 400G harddrive is presenting a lot of 'UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCIES' across all partitions. (orphaned inodes mostly). Coupled with this there was screen freezing, and unusual 'unable to write' messages. This has happened several times.
On my internal hard drive are 3 hidden partitions: /dev/sda5, /dev/sda6, and /dev/sda7. Disc erasers do not remove them. I am hoping ( and praying ) that there is a terminal command that will remove them.
Is there such a terminal command? Thanks!!
