Unable to access Harddrive
My PC running Windows Vista recently crashed with a BSoD (not sure which error code) and now does not boot into Vista.
I tried booting into Ubuntu LiveCD and I figured out that the problem is with the main partition that has my OS. It is corrupt so I ran ntfsfix on it but it requires CHKDSK.
-Safe Mode (with all its options)
-Windows XP Recovery CD.
-Windows Vista recovery CD (BSoD).
-Windows 7 Installation Disk, to run CHKDSK but it does not even recognize the HDD. (says please load drivers).
-Windows 8 Installation Disk, keeps loading then black screen.
All I want to do now is run CHKDSK successfully because I want to recover the files on my C: partition and install new OS.
Thank you in advance !

Is your PC a desktop or a laptop/notebook?
Please add your System Specs to your profile as it helps us with our response.
If your first priority is to get your user data off the HDD, then best option would be to remove the drive and connect it to another working system to see if the data is still accessible. If it is, then you can copy it off.
Let us know if you are able to do that and post back with your system configuration details so we can provide you with the options.
