    Boot up from LiveCD of any distro and execute fsck command on /dev/sda1 partition.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    fsck is the command, /dev/sda1 is the device you want it run on.
    Thus, there has to be a space in between.

    sudo fsck /dev/sda1

    Execute this
    Code:
    fsck.ext3  /dev/sda1
    You must have root privileges to execute above command.

    It comes back with this
    e2fsk.ext3: Attemp to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while rying to open /dev/sda1
    Could this be a zero-length partition?
