    I am a dumb-ass, please kick my ass.

    Heres the story:

    -I currently was running my system from a 120GB WD.
    -Got my 80GB Maxtor replacement in the mail today.
    -Installed replacement.
    -Formatted it as the Primary Partition, when it should've been an extended. (IDIOT!)
    -Restarted computer
    -GRUB comes up in console rather than GUI...wont load kernel, cannot detect HDx#
    -Cannot boot from Win98 CD because it is too scratched up, and my friend has my WinXP CD's.

    I cannot believe that I selected Partition Magic to format it as Primary, omg...

    KICK feel better? WE all have done things like that, or had them done for us. I had XP reformat HD0 to ntfs because It had linux on HD0. I fixed that problem with a fdisk of xp
    Besided I hate the whay it looks!

    Now I keep much better backups too!
