first thing to check is the boot order is ok.

 

if no joy...

 

then check the SATA cable on the actual boot disk. it could be heat damaged or loose.

 

then this

Ok, do you have a repair cd? Try chkdsk /r that's what fixed my XP system

Have a question, or just wanna chat? Send me a message. Or add me as a friend.

Was the Linux boot on a live cd? or do you have dual operating systems?

 

Can you access your files from it? You could just back them up through Linux and reformat your drive, if your Win OS is that buggered.

I really dont know actually, i took out a hard drive from a toshiba laptop but i'm not sure if the toshiba laptop works due to a damaged screen but when i installed linux ubuntu using a usb stick it never asked me if i want to dual boot etc, also i had few files on my laptop as i use my gaming pc mostly i just wanted my laptop to work as me and a few friends like to play minecraft sometimes

Using Puppy Linux live disc to transfer your files on a external drive http://www.winhelp.us/recover-files-using-puppy-linux.html#.UEmYsJZca0R

If the drive is not able to mount or read while using the live disc, then most likely the HD has failed.

so you have both operating systems installed on the same machine....? right?

 

If you can't even run a repair start or safe mode on your XP OS it is ruined (for all intensive purposes). Just take your files over to your Linux partition and reinstall XP in the Win partition.

 

Just had thought on this. Is your Win partition full? that would stop it dead too. If so, delete some files out of there with Linux and you should be good to repair and go.

I made the same move last year... Now work on Debian, and if I need windows apps I run a virtual machine. It's the way of the future.
