    Exclamation ntfs partition raw error bc ubuntu

    Dear all,
    I have Win recovery on dev/sda1, Win7 64x on dev/sda2, had Ubuntu 9.10 on sda5 and swap was sda6. I was using this ubuntu program with the name of NTFS configuration or something in the lines of that and it forced my win7 partition sda2 to mount on startup. I couldn't get around that so I went ahead and did a wipe of ubuntu to reinstall it.
    Using grub fixer, I wanted to get into win7 but apparently my windows 7 is now a raw partition (I DID NOT wipe it, I can assure you.)
    I have ubuntu live and this is the error I get, helphelp.PNG
    When I run the recovery console on windows using sda1 I get the following error messages
    Diagnosis and repair details.doc, chkdsk can't run bc it's raw, can't system restore, can't do anything.

    I need to get data off of my sda2, otherwise I would do a clean reinstall.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If need more info, let me know and I'll do my best.

    I'd try running testdisk to see if could repair sda2 enough that you could run chkdsk on it from sda1.
