I have this problem saying NTLDR Is Missing on Window Vista. The computer will not continue. The Hard Drive is only two years old on the Dell Laptop. This all happen when I decided to unplug the cord as I tried loading MSN. The MSN web page was spinning around never loading. I tried to Control alt delete Mozilla and tried shutting it down but it was a no go so i pulled the plug. I am not 100% if it is the hard drive or just a problem with a file. I do not want to reformat the hard drive as it has some data I did not back up I tried Ubuntu that says you can get back your data from an old hard drive. I read the details on a Use Ubuntu Live CD to Backup Files from Your Dead Windows Computer but it does not work. Ubuntu was a new version so the Operating System was a little different. I could not mount nothing. This is what it said. Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error Failed to calculate free MFT records: Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or its a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1).
