SOURCE: e-recovery stalls at about 40%
Sounds like a problem with your hard drive. The original hard drive installed is 40Gb. The message "destination: \\harddisk0\partition2" indicates that your single HD has been set to 2 partitions. Chances are that the recovery files are saved in your 2nd partition D. If your laptop came with a recovery CD, try using that instead of the eRecovery ALT/F10. Alternately, you may want to use an OEM XP Home Edition Installer and choose the 2nd "Repair" option.
If things don't work out, you may need to re-partition the HD and reinstall fresh/clean. Of course this would erase any and all contents of the drive. Should there be important files, you need to back them up but that would mean removing the HD and using an external enclosure, connect it as a removable storage to a 2nd PC using the USB and proceed to copy all your important files assuming of course that the 2nd PC will be able to read the HD in question.
If even on the 2nd PC you are having difficulty accessing the laptop's HD, try running utilities (ScanDisk) to check the HD's integrity. Possible problems are bad sectors, missing partition, corrupt files and the likes. If there are bad sectors, you may need to purchase a replacement.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
