    If you have access to a Windows 8 DVD use it's repair computer mode as it is much improved over Windows 7.

    What version of Windows are you trying to repair.

    NTFS is a proprietary FS, so it is better to use for the repair tool (chkdsk for example) from M$

    I think you just need to do re install the Windows System, but first, try to backup the data first with your UBuntu.

    How if you try GParted? You can find it in many distros.
    Or try running the command again. Maybe you mistyped somewhere.
    If nothing else works, insert your original Windows CD and use its repair function.

    To run chkdisk, you need to be able to boot into Windows. If you cannot do that directly, you need to use your Windows CD/DVD to boot into the recovery console and run chkdisk from there. Make sure you use the /f option in order to fix any problems it finds. Based on the messages you are getting from the Linux tools, I would guess that chkdisk may not do any better at recovering your partition since it looks like there is an issue with locating the Master File Table. This will also happen if BitLocker was used on the affected partition.
