A power supply failure killed my cpu as I started the computer. I put the hard drive in another motherboard
and it starts, but gives me the screen that Windows XP failed to start, try SAFE MODE.
If I try Safe Mode it displays a series of file names and then stops.
I assume the drive is still functioning. File system is NTFS. WinXP Pro.
Before this I tried to install the drive as a slave on my Promise card. The card recognizes the drive during bootup.
"MY COMPUTER" sees the drive as Local Disk E, but when I click on it it says the drive is not formatted.
PartitionMagic sees the drive as Disk 2, but the drive name is "*:" rather than "E:" .
It correctly reports the size of the drive and the amount of used space. It also reports the drive type as NTFS.
Can ZAR work on this problem?
