Thanks Windows for deleting my entire fucking Ubuntu partition in your latest update. I didnt really need any of those projects I was working on. It's not like I have deadlines or anything.

PS.
Go fuck yourself

    You mean the anniversary update? Then its not gone. The partition just doesn't show up. Rollback the Windows update and your partition will show up again. Same thing happened to me. Look it up , you will see a bunch of people with the same mysterious issue.

    My thoughts too.

    Even if the partition seems gone, it's probably still there, just not in the partition table. You can usually recover it with testdisk (from live iso).
    (unless windows spent the 2h "applying updates" screen zeroing out your drive)

    I tried reinstalling the grub but it still only boots directly to windows (even when I specify Ubuntu) however I was able to boot into a live cd and copy off everything important. I thought it was gone initially because disk management was showing the partition as unallocated

    To all the MS haters, Go F Yourself. You lack the basic knowledge of an OS (as a dev).

    @Kongen as a fellow Linux user, I ask you to not post things like this. It's not going to convince anyone to switch and it makes the Linux community look like a bunch of assholes to outsiders.

    Hopefully window wont format partition that it doesn't know about xp go dl systemrescuecd and check your boot, but if you got an efi system it should simply be your efibootmgr window position which had been swapped with your grub.

    In most modern laptops and pcs you need to disable the safeboot to not boot directly into windows but go to grub. It happened to me that windows updates and bios updates re-enabled it (going into bios to change that fixed everything and grub was already fine afterwards).

    I never ever experienced windows updates to act in any way over partitions not containing windows OS files.
