Hi All,

I needed to install Fedora Core 2 as an alternative operating system. Its so old that my hard drive did not recognise it so I downloaded Fedora 10 and excepted the default settings in installation and to my horror I no longer have Vista! I'm most certainly freaking out as I did not receive Vista installation CDs since it was already installed . I tried booting from the factory default disks I made but they failed.
What do I do????

Without knowing how it is partitioned it is difficult to tell. If there was a recovery partition that was wiped out during the install that would cause the restore disks to fail.
There are many live CDs like knoppix that will let you examine the hard drive without the possibility doing any more "damage" However if the Fedora installation reformated the entire
drive then some data file might be recoverable but it will not be very easy and most likely Vista will not.
