When I boot Live distribution everything is fine. I can read/write to my 
partitions. The problem is there - i don't wanna format my whole hard 
disk because I have 70gb information , Windows partition , Debian and 
other stuffs. I have ubuntu installed, too , but it works slower with 
new mb ( slower than live cd in fact). So I think it would be ok when I 
install a new one. Hard Disk is fine, because I was able to install 
Windows on it after moving to the new MB.
