I have an Asus Eepc with Windows 7 x64 pre-installed.
I had two partitions, C: and D:
Because of a virus I decided to format and re-install Windows 7 x64 from DVD.
Booting from an external DVD player, I started the fresh installation process.
Windows found four partitions:
C: 100 GB as Disk 0 Partition 1
A 15 Gb partition as Disk 0 Partition 2
D: 200 GB as Disk 0 Partition 3
A 16 Mb partition as Disk 0 Partition 3.
I formatted C: and ordered windows to be installed there.
It gave me the following error: "The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks."
I was not expecting this.
I rebooted several times - I already had formatted C: and had no access to the OS - tried again and the last time that message didn't show up, so I could finish the installation.
Now I have the C: partition, where Windows is installed, but my former D: partition, where all my documents are, is not shown. Instead I have a D: partition with 15 Gb and nothing inside.
Using an Ubuntu DVD I can see that my D: partition is still there with all my data, but Windows is not showing it.
Who can help me to get it back?
Thank you so much in advance,
