Default Partition problems

Hello all..i tried to install ubuntu to try it out so i made the partitions in partition magic and did the install..when all was done i couldn't get linux to boot it'll just go to xp..so i figured the hell with this lol and decided against it..went back to partition magic to delete the partitions i just made and i see this


everything in the task area is greyed out so i can't choose anything..when i right click i can choose to set it active? but i get this error message


i noticed it said fix mbr so i went to windows recovery console and fixed it to see if it'll work..and nothing..

anyone know how i can either get the partitions back or get ubuntu to run properly? thanks

Try running chkdsk /r and see if it'll let you do anything then.
