Ok, so I have a PC running Windows 8 that I recently decided to try the new reset option on. Mid way through the reset, the computer shut itself down and now when it opens, it shows an error message saying that the file: windows\system32\winload.exe could not be found. I searched online and found that you can launch the files from the computer from a disk with the Ubuntu system on it. I downloaded the software on the disk and booted the computer from the disk which got me to the software on the disk. The problem is, I looked through all the files and I can't find where the files that are saved on the windows system as documents and pictures are. (I am using Ubuntu 12.04 on the disk - NOT downloaded to the system) Please help me out with this and thank you in advanced.
Boot from Ubuntu, Mount the Windows partition and then find where the file is located. (Ubuntu should do this automatically or at least show an icon or an option in the file-manager to mount the partition).
As noted in a comment:
Then you can put the new file in place.
