(first of all im very newbie)
I have read these posts and after test and test, this is the result which i get:
[root@cliente******** mrwylli]# /sbin/fsck /dev/hda1
fsck 1.27ea (14-Mar-2002)
fsck: fsck.ntfs: not found
/sbin/fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.ntfs for /dev/hda1
Now i will explain what is what i need: i had winXp and mandrake 9 installed in my computer, one day i was changing partition table with partition magic 8 and the power failed (electric energy shutdown) and when it returned,the partition of WinXp (/dev/hda1) with NTFS filesystem didnt and doesnt work (it only restart and restart...) and now what i need is a program to repair the partition table of /dev/hda1 from linux.
I also advice that winXP is in its own hard disk and Mandrake is in the same situation (it has its own HD)
..and take a look with cfdisk do you still have windows partition.
but imho there is no way with fsck to fix ntfs, `cause fsck is for simple problem fixing. ntfs is not writeable by default in some distros, and you need to recompile kernel to enable it (?). And ntfs is not recomended to write from linux, you can damage it.
