Can anyone help?
I have installed ubuntu 12.04LTS on a new hard drive on an old desktop.
The old drive (sdb) has Windows XP that is inaccessible.
When I try to mount sdb2, I get this:
jonathan@jonathan-Dimension-5100:~$ sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb2/mnt/win_nfts[sudo] password for jonathan:Failed to load runlist for $MFT/$DATA.highest_vcn = 0x1213b, last_vcn - 1 = 0x16c1fFailed to load $MFT: Input/output errorFailed to mount '/dev/sdb2': Input/output errorNTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's aSoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windowsthen reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is veryimportant! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activateit and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g./dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentationfor more details.
I have tried nfts-3g but am a newbie and am lost with that.My objective here is to be able to boot Windows XP to enable me to use some windows programs there and/or access old files residing there.Any help will be appreciated - I have scoured the forums without success.
