Get a windows cd and boot to the revovery console, see below or
http://www.grc.com/spinrite.htm download Spinrite on another machine, if it cannot fix it then it will recover your data.
Starting the Windows Recovery Console loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To start the Windows Recovery Console, use one of the following methods: • Use the Windows Setup floppy disks or the Windows CD-ROM to start your computer. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press F10 or press 'R" to repair. • U
CHKDSK loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); chkdsk drive /p /r The chkdsk command checks the specified drive and repairs or recovers the drive if the drive requires it. The command also marks any bad sectors and it recovers readable information.
You can use the following options: /p : Does an exhaustive check of the drive and corrects any errors.
/r : Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information.
The boot records my need fixing:
FIXBOOT loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); fixboot drive name: Use this command to write the new Windows boot sector code on the system partition. In the command syntax, drive name is the drive letter where the boot sector will be written. This command fixes damage in the Windows boot sector. This command overrides the default setting, which writes to the system boot partition. The fixboot command is supported only on x86-based computers. FIXMBR loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); fixmbr device name Use this command to repair the MBR of the boot partition. In the command syntax, device name is an optional device name that specifies the device that requires a new MBR. Use this command if a virus has damaged the MBR and Windows cannot start.
Warning This command can damage your partition tables if a virus is present or if a hardware problem exists. If you use this command, you may create inaccessible partitions. We recommend that you run antivirus software before you use this command.
You can obtain the device name from the output of the map command. If you do not specify a device name, the MBR of the boot device is repaired, for example: fixmbr \device\harddisk2 If the fixmbr command detects an invalid or non-standard partition table signature, fixmbr command prompts you for permission before rewriting the MBR. The fixmbr command is supported only on x86-based computers.
