Hi,
I thought the instalation will make a partion besides of windows (Dual sysstem), but i thought wrong. Is there any way to bring back at lest my media data (datarecovery program for kunbuntu or so).
I believe this is not possible , but i thought first to ask and then to cry  ;D

Thx for any help
rob

you might be able to recover the files that were not written over, but the filesystem is destroyed so you'd need a recovery program where you can specify which filesystem the data was written in. I'm not sure if any free ones allow that.

you also will probably have to re-create the partition table the way it was previously which you probably dont know.

* CramFS, Compressed File System
* DOS/Windows FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32
* HFS and HFS+, Hierarchical File System
* JFS, IBM's Journaled File System
* Linux Ext2 and Ext3
* Linux Raid
o RAID 1: mirroring
o RAID 4: striped array with parity device
o RAID 5: striped array with distributed parity information
o RAID 6: striped array with distributed dual redundancy information
* Linux Swap (versions 1 and 2)
* LVM and LVM2, Linux Logical Volume Manager
* Mac partition map
* Novell Storage Services NSS
* NTFS ( Windows NT/2K/XP/2003/Vista )
* ReiserFS 3.5, 3.6 and 4
* Sun Solaris i386 disklabel
* Unix File System UFS and UFS2 (Sun/BSD/...)
* XFS, SGI's Journaled File System
