I am trying to ressurect an old computer running Windows XP.
I think the hard drive has become corrupted, but I am not sure. I booted up a Xubuntu Live CD to try and rescue any data on the drive before making a dual boot system (or I may just use it as a server).
Gparted won't let me mount the only partition on the hard drive. It's an NTFS partition and gparted says "Error: NTFS is inconsistent" and to run chkdsk within windows, but that's not possible, because when I try to boot using the hard drive, I get a boot disk failure.
