I have installed from the CD installer many times now, and I've never had a single partition vanish on me yet.  Sounds like you installed Kubuntu first and then used a lmce DVD (which, as we all know, wipes the entire drive) to install over that.

Yes I did install Kubuntu first and then used a Linux MCE live dvd, so that's the problem? and I won't have this problem if I have 4 partitions with win xp on part. 1 and then install Linux MCE from the live dvd on the other 3 partitions? The problem is that English is not my native language so I want to make really sure to prevent data loss. many thanks!

So do I understand it correctly that you can install linux mce with a dual boot (win xp) ? Because I tried this before with 4 partitions (1st xp 2nd / root 3rd swap 4th home )and I used the Linux mce live cd and after installing linux mce from the live cd all my partitions were gone and I had to begin all over again. Also all the data on this hdd were gone!

So I want to be sure if I install Kubuntu 7.10 on the hdd then boot up with Kubuntu and then download and install Linux mce ?
