Borked linux partition. Help!


Recommended Posts

I was removing an XP installation on my wee home server (OldBetty) using gParted's LiveCD. All the operations worked, and went smoothly. At the end though, gParted closed itself. When I opened it again, it could figured out my linux partition's FS.

After half an hour of trying to get this to work without hosing her down, I'm stumped. I'm in my Arch Linux LiveCD right now.

Here some outputs.

fdisk -l

Device Start End Blocks Id System

/dev/hda2 17 11926 95667075 83 Linux

When I use "fsck.ext3 /dev/hda2" and other variants, I get the "Bad Magic number in super-block" error.
