My Windows is failing to start with a blue screen and when I attempt to access the C Drive from my ubuntu, I got this error :-

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: $LogFile version 2.0
is not supported.  (This driver supports version 1.1 only.) $LogFile
version 2.0 is not supported.  (This driver supports version 1.1
only.) Did not find any restart pages in $LogFile and it was not
empty. The file system wasn't safely closed on Windows. Fixing.
ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error Failed to
read NTFS $Bitmap: Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or
there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In
the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows
twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device
is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different
device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.

I am able to mount all other partitions which were initially assigned to Windows 8

What are the possible solutions for me ? I can even go for a complete disc reformat. Is there any way I can recover the partition ?

Any suggestion will be appreciated !

It tells you what to try. Run chkdsk /f in Windows and reboot twice. Did you do this? –  Nattgew Apr 10 at 16:17

@Nattgew I tried accessing terminal using a Windows 8 LIVE CD but it is also crashing in between. It is not able to reach the recovery option –  Prashant Singh Apr 11 at 8:14
