Question about Sony VAIO VGN-T170P/L Notebook
First of all the computer will not load the operating system (winxp) and displays the error "missing bootmgr" "Press Ctrl+Alt+Supr to reboot". I dissasembeled the laptop to take out the hdd, backup data and format the hdd but it uses some type of inversed mini ide conector which I just could not find any adaptor for transfering data, so I assembled it again to install a second operating system on a new "windows1" folder and it will not let me finish that either and it displays another error. So the bottom line and main question I mean to ask is. Is there another mehtod that I could try to backup data prior to formating the hdd. Any advice would be highly appreciated. - Thank you for your time.
Yeah, do not format the disk and install operating system to other partition.
