I have an old Toshiba Tecra A3x portatil computer with Windows XP. I had to switch it off by unplugging the power cord after the SO hanged. Since then the computer doesn't start. It shows the awful blue screen of death instead with the code 0x000000ED:
I can mount the filesystem in Linux (Knoppix) and it seems to be ok. I have also tried to fix it with ntfsfix but nothing has worked.

Can I pick your brain about how to fix this error?
If you believe the drive to be OK (may not be - may have errors) and further attempt to repair did not work, then your option with XP is to re-install XP.
Boot again with Linux as you did, recover the data to a USB connected HDD / SSD.
Once you have your needed data, re-install XP and recover the data you need.
You still may possibly find a disk drive error when you attempt to reinstall which means replacing the disk.
