I had to reinstall Windows on my machine, which had a dual boot with Crunchbang. My Crunchbang install has two partitions, root and home.

So I have installed Windows, booted with a Ubuntu liveCD, reinstalled grub on the Crunchbang root partition, rebooted... and my home cannot be found! I am booting into my root partition, and cannot see the home partition.

What to do?

You need to provide a little more information. Could you let us know the contents of your /dev folder? – darnir Jul 27 '12 at 8:56

Your question is not very clear in regards to "home cannot be found". Do as in the partition is no longer there or?? Either way you should try and mount the partition manually if this is the case.

If he cannot see the partition, I doubt he can mount it directly. – darnir Jul 27 '12 at 8:55
indeed I couldnt see it in any way... i ended up reinstalling from scratch, I just wonder how that happened... I swear I installed Windows in its own partition. – alemur Jul 27 '12 at 14:51
