I don't think my story is the same as yours, though it does look
a bit alike. Mine was bad from the start, after linux was installed,
no more windows....   Eventually i solved it, but with a lot more
hassle than I would ever like to admit (and my thus-far flawless
linux installs have now been tarnished.....). For a full record,
see http://www.astro.umd.edu/~teuben/linux/laptop/dell-810m.html.

Had i not used parted, probably everything would have been fine.
