My greatest worry is i also hard another partition on the same computer and even cannot access that one too. Please somebody should help because i hard all my important documents on partition. I DID NOT FORMAT MY COMPUTER DURING LINUX INSTALLATION .... Now i can only access 6gb out of the 225 gb hard drive ...

most distributions have "update-grub", this will allow you to boot into windows. (needs to be run with sudo)

alternatively you can just mount your windows partition in linux.

I'm writing this on a Toshiba Satellite so I feel for ya. If you're dual-booting, you should have a list of operating systems on bootup that you can choose from. If you want to change the order (boot Windoze, for instance, so your wife doesn't freak out) download StartUp-manager and run it. If you just want to see your windoze files, you should be able to mount that partition with your file manager.
