Modprobe the ntfs kernel module. Maybe also the nls_utf8 module. If this is successful then try mounting the partition.
sudo /sbin/modprobe ntfs
sudo /sbin/modprobe nls_utf8
I'm not certain about the nls_utf8 module, but it may be needed for the nls=utf8 mount option.

This assumes that the ntfs kernel is enabled for your kernel.
