If your partition table is b0rked, there's nothing a bootloader can do about it (except maybe compound the problem). Are you sure there are no physical problems with the drive (bad sectors etc.)? I've dual booted with Windows literally countless times without a problem. I bet a google query would turn up some kinda partition recovery tool (probably for dos).

If it's really a partition problem, you might want to check the tool TestDisk, that recovers partition problems.
