Could I still salvage the information? God damnit this sucks!
The drive still gets warm, I touched the bottom of it carefully and heat is being emitted; does this mean it is still good to go?
EDIT: I got Hiren's boot CD going, I'm at the menu right now. I selected Boot from Harddrive but that obviously didn't work lol. Which option should I be going after?
boot into mini xp its straight on the menu. Then browse for the dump check file on the hdd. Did you run any disk utilities? If not do not yet
And the boot from hdd your suppose to choose the bottom one for your os. Ntdlr for xp and loader for 7Edited by Spooony - 6/15/11 at 10:07pm
