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.
