Dualboot XP + Ubuntu 8.10 help
74882 MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi
<Setp cannot access this disk.>
Dos prompt doesn't recognize any files / folders on the HD (cant run CHKDSK), although all the files from Windows seems to be intact from within Ubuntu, which is working fine.
sudo fdisk -l gives the following:
Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x41ab2316
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 8231 66115476 7 HPFS/NTFS

Not sure what to do from here, any ideas?
It looks like you have two separate problems. I assume
you resized the Windows partition in order to make space
for Linux. It is rare, but occasionally data gets corrupted
during resizing, and this is why it won't boot into Windows.
The second problem is that the Windows installer won't
recognize the (presumably sata) hard drive. You will have
to research a method for loading the sata driver before
running the installer. The computer manufacturer may have
this driver, which may be booted by floppy or some such
method, to enable the installer to proceed.
