How did you enter the LVM setup menu? It should be disabled (grey) on powermacs.
I started Yast, then "adjust installation" or "system administration" (don't remember) then selected Configure LMV which was enabled indeed. I have a 6 CD pack-english, version is 7.1-0.0
I can lose both OS installs, but I would like to see my data back !!
There is no way to get the data back.
Do you mean my disk was re-formatted in the process ??? It is a 30 Gig disk, I didn't hear it wind much when I pressed the "ok" button...
Boot CD1, start yast1, switch to console2 with ALT+F2 and run dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda for a few seconds. That will remove the broken partition table (it contains now a fdisk and pdisk label). Then reboot with the MacOS CD and create a fresh partition map with Drive Setup.
Ok. If I install a new MacOS partition (small one), could I use some mac tools to recover files ? Or am I extremely sorry now ?
