Can't Boot Up HELP PLEASE

Specs: Windows XP Pro, 1.93GB
Last Monday, my wife was having problems with our computer while I was at work. I told her to reboot and when I got home, it would not boot up.

Some specs: OS HD is a Seagate SATA 160GB HD. I also have a WD IDE 80 GB HD which is only used for storage. No OS on it.

I have a program called GoBack which runs before Windows starts. It gives you a chance to revert your HD back to a previous point in time (kinda like Restore). It tries running and eventually I get a GoBack Internal Error. Failure code: gb_genlog(175). I tried Google and tried doing what the Symantec site said to do as well at repeatedly hitting CTRL-ALT-G. Nothing worked. I cannot boot up in Safe-Mode either to disable or uninstall GoBack.

I tried using a SATA HD Enclosure on another computer. It would show the SATA drive in Disk Management but would not let me assign a drive letter therefore not letting me access the drive.

I then decided to try running Ubuntu from a disk in hopes of being able to access the drive and transferring my files to the IDE HD. I got an error when I tried to open the HD saying something to the effect of $LogFile indicates unclean shutdown (0,0) Failed to mount, etc.

Can anyone help me get my files off the SATA drive? I am in dire need of my pictures because all my pictures of my 3 kids and b-days and stuff are on there and I was too dumb to realize I had not copied them to my IDE drive.

Please help!!

UPDATE!!!

I re-tried the CTRL-ALT-G to disable GoBack and I hit the G button about a thousand times per second and go the result I was looking for. Guess I wasn't hitting the G button fast enough the other times. Anyway, I booted up in Safe-Mode and am copying my Pictures over to my IDE HD. Next step is to uninstall GoBack forever and then burn my pics to DVD.

Whooo Hooo!!!!
