I just got my new notebook with windows 8 pre installed. After installing ubuntu 12.04 when I try to boot windows 8 it says "Automated Recovery in Progress" which fails afterwards and shuts down the machine stating the partition on which windows is installed is locked.
Actually during the ubuntu installation I merged two disk drives to one and made it as an extended partition. Then I divided the extended partition into two logical partition. One of which is blank and other is having Ubuntu installed.
I had tried to back up the data from ubuntu but I was not able to see the files of the partition containing windows 8.
Please help me to recover windows 8 or to back up the data.
