I have a ATA WDC WD3200KS-75P which I can mount with Ubuntu, which is installed on a seperate drive, but cannot boot a fresh image of XP. From DOS it shows the the message "cannot read from last sector" and sometimes does not even see the drive. I have used gparted to erase the original Windows XP partition, partition 2 and renew the ntfs filesystem. I then used the Dell System Restore partition, partition 3 to restore the OS to partition 2. This partition is visible and mountable from ubuntu but does not boot. I ran a file system check from KDE partition Manager and received "Error reading $Mft record(s) : Input/output error." I also ran a check with TestDisk that showed no errors with the partitions. Any help would be appreciated.

Update: I'm thinking of reformatting and repartitioning entire disk. Any thoughts if this may help or am I wasting my time? Any help or advice would be most appreciated.
