    Partitions not reading properly


    I have had a dual boot Ubuntu/XP pc for a while, but yesterday it refused to boot into windows and I cant get anything from my data partition! I can boot into Ubuntu fine but with windows it gets to the windows logo then bluescreens on me.

    Does this sound like a hardware problem or a virus?

    Please help, I really dont wanna have lost all that data.

    Thanks.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Its Windows OS problem and you should ask for help in Windows OS Forums only.

    You can mount Windows Partitions in Ubuntu and recover data easily. Ubuntu supports read/write access in FAT32 partitions by default. Install ntfs-3g package to enable NTFS read/write access.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
