|Per's link is worth a shot.|
Other stuff I found:
"Here is another link that I found that really has a good description of their failure and how they fixed it."
"In this case we recommend you to use third party software, like Active@ UNERASER for DOS or Active@ File Recovery for Windows to access and save your files to another drive, and then reformat the partition."
Active@ UNERASER is a powerful hard drive recovery software for DOS and Windows (Console) that can recover deleted files and folders on FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS file systems. $50
Active@ File Recovery is a utility which allows you to recover deleted files or to recover files from deleted or damaged partitions. $30
(Active file recovery might be enough)
Master File Editor, or recover the files from your partition:
Works even if your Windows won't boot.
PC Beginner utilities suite - $30 till Dec 6 midnight, regular $70.
Can download an image of the CD.
Scroll down to Partition, Format, Clean Up Hard Drive
If it doesn't help, there are lots of other utilities on it you can use for other things.
"Also it identified my IDE drive as a SATA drive if that helps."
That is really weird.
