I used Gparted Live and deleted all partitions on the target HDD but I still get exactly the same error! So... what now?

"I still find it a little odd you can't run Ubuntu via a live disk." Me too!!! But I will proceed to make a GParted live USB next. Thank you.

furthermore, you are right about the Catch-22. I cannot get into Linux in any way, so I cannot run any of the tools I am familiar with. I hate Windows and this new Windows 8 makes me want to scream.

The unclean shutdown is not on partition (0, 0), which is the Windows partition. It is on (0, 1). I do not know how to run checkdisk on that partition. I think it is the Windows recovery partition. Whatever it is, it seems inaccessible.
