    I..

    don't think you understand.

    When Ubuntu boots with the GRUB menu it says I don't have f**king WIndows 7. :mad:
    Is there anyway I can check I still have my OS?

    Before I do this will it matter if I have installed Ubuntu on my hard disk and not partitioned it? I think it & dread it has over wrote it.

    Also can I recover my windows data?

    I have done what the article has said but in my hard drives there are only linux options; I have deleted windows.

    Is there any way that I can restore this?

    use the ubuntu cd and boot into live and go into g-parted once you have booted and see if partition for w7 is still visible

    WHat I have done is I have went into testdisk, searched further and it HAS found a WINDOWS partition but when I enter that partition it says no data available to recover, any other utiliteis I can use to recover?
