Windows filesystem corrupt/not booting

  1. Hi,

    I rebooted my system this morning and got a kernel panic after the Windows splash screen (I was unable to read exact fault as it only flashed up for a moment). In recovery console I cannot do a directory listing it just tells me that the files cannot be enunciated. I tried to mount the windows partition in Linux but it gave me some error relating to the filesystem (I can't actually paste it because now GRUB seems to be having troubles loading). Finally Windows won't do a fresh install without requesting a full format of data due to the drive being full or corrupt.

    Is there any way I can attempt to recover the data on the Windows partition?

    OK, got it fixed with chkdsk /p and fixboot!
