Ubuntu – Recover Ubuntu installation after Ext2Fsd installation

bootdual-bootpartitioningwindows 10

I have a dual boot setup on my machine. Windows 10 64-Bit and Ubuntu 16.10 64-Bit. This worked until I installed Ext2Fsd in Windows. I can now access my Linux partition from Windows as drive letter but I cannot boot Linux any more.

The error message is Superblock could not be read, use e2fsck -b 8193 device.

Any advice on what to do? Running the command from the broken Linux command line did not work.

I fixed the issue using e2fsck -b 32768 /dev/sda5 and pressing a to automatically correct all errors. Now Ubuntu 16.10 is booting again.
