|Hi everyone, this is my first post here :)|
I have read through a lot of the existing threads regarding this problem but haven't found a solution. I think this one is actually simpler than what others are posting about. I guess we will see. Here is the situation:
I have a Dell XPS 630i machine. It has Vista Home Premium 64 installed. It has 8GB RAM wooohooo! and 2 500GB HD's in a RAID 0 array. I stupidly ran Malwarebytes (I love this program but it kills 64 bit machines). Anyhow I ran Malwarebytes in safe mode, removed a couple trojans, and rebooted the machine. I have not been able to get to the desktop since. It starts up, passes POST, gives me the Starting Windows splash screen, then the cursor comes up and thats it.
I cannot open the task manager.
I cannot get into safe mode.
All of the hardware is good.
The RAID 0 array is healthy.
All I want to do is back up the data on the hard drives the wipe it out and install Windows 7.
So my question is... how do I get that data backed up?
I would really appreciate any help anyone has to offer.
