[ubuntu] Windows partitions lost after installing ubuntu??

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I have two physical hard disks, one around 200GB and one 1TB. I had the large one splitted into 3 partitions around 300GB each. I used Windows XP. Yesterday I formatted the small disk and installed Ubuntu 10.4 (trying not to mess with anything in the large disk). Now from within Ubuntu I can see only the third partition of the large disk (referring as size 1TB). I tried to use GParted but it still mentions only one large partition (that contains only the files of the third previous partition). Any way to recover lost partitions? Thank you very much, Nick (Hardware)
