A friend asked me to fix an old Dell Inspiron 1520 with Windows XP SP2. It does not boot into Win anymore so I am trying to use a Ubuntu 9.04 liveCD to try and grab some of the documents before doing a complete re-install.
I found an article stating the best way to do this is force the mounting of the HDD. So I created the /media/disk directory and then tried "mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /media/disk -o force"
This is the error message:
Failed to open inode $MFTMirr:No such file or directory
Failed to open $MFTMirr:No such file or directory
Failed to mount '/dev/sda2': No such file or directory
What can I try next? Thanks guys.
