There should not be any problem loading XP on another Hard drive. Just please do not put AOL on it the next time. AOL causes more problems than a virus or spyware. You can then put the old hard drive in as a slave and try to get the data off of it. You could possibly run the XP install and do the second repair and it will take out everything that windows needs and then put it back in. This usually does not bother your saved files but it can. You can run a hard drive test on the drive with another machine if you have one. You can download the hard drive test from the hard drive maker. You can also pull the files off of the drive with another machine.
Rate me if this helps.

My quantum fireball AS 20 3.5 series HardDisk has been cruppted.it file system is been changed to "RAW" and when i want to open it, it gives a Message that is: "Do you want to...


Hello !
There are a number of tools you can use to do this operation, since the data may yet still be retrievable.
If you know what your file system on that HDD was (FAT32/NTFS) I would recommend you to get the program "GetDataBackNTFS" or "GetDataBackFAT32" (same program for 2 different file system organization).
If this fails, you can use Paragon to retrieve data. Just search on the internet for HDD data retrieval.
This also happened to me once with a faulty HDD and one partition entirely became RAW.
Note : GetDataBack will allow you for a free use to retrieve up to 1 GB of data.
All the best !

Cant log in on vista password forgotten


Discussion: When we are running imagex we are not deleting user data from the HDD, in this process we are overwriting data. But, its better to set expectation to Customer that thre might be possibility of data loss. After completing the process we can logon to the system with new user account that we create and we can retrieve data from old user profile.
Here is the process to run Imagex:
1. Boot to the computer using VISTA DVD.
2. Select the option repair my computer.
3. Go to command prompt
4. Go to D: prompt
5. Type Path d:\windows;d:\windows\system32 and press Enter
6. Go to Tools folder using command "cd tools".
7. Use this command Imagex /apply d:\dell\image\factory.wim 1 c:\
This process will take 15 Minutes after that reboot the system. After rebboting we will get OOBE Screen.
We can logon to the system using new username. We can retrieve the data by navigating to old user profile.
How to retrieve the data from the old user profile after using the Imagex procedure :
1. Click Computer
2. Click Local Disk C:
3. Locate Windows.old and double click on the same
4. Click Users
5. Click <username>
Note : <username> would be the login name for which he has forgotten the password
6. Accordingly you can access the files available in the folders Desktop, Favourites, Music, Downloads etc

New computer won't recognize my Firelite, works on old computer


You need drivers for USB, if you remember when you bought smartdisk you got the installation disc, that you now need for a new computer.

Sony Vaio laptop could not access 1TB external hard drive


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program to recover your files.
