    Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: $MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 0).

    It may just need chkdsk from a Windows repairCD or recovery console if dual booting Windows. You may have to run multiple times as chkdsk does not always fix everything on one pass.

    If chkdsk does not work, some advanced things to try.
    If Microsoft's Checkdisk (chkdsk) failed to repair the MFT, run TestDisk, also rebuild boot sector

    small 'system reserved' NTFS partition instead of the partition where windows was installed.

    Thanks, solved. I've installed win.7 instead of XP and it works.
