My XP on C: drive just crashed last week.
Safe mode doesn't work.
Recovery Console brings up a new error message of it's own.
Last Safe Config? Yeah. Sounds nice. Not this time . . .
So, what I did was install XP on my D: drive, brought my precious files back from the dead via NTFS Undelete -Freeware.
Got my files.
But I still have the problem with the XP on C:
Is there a way I can 'hack' into C: using the D: drive XP?
See, the problem I'm having here is I know the STOP error is telling me it's a software/hardware conflict (0x0A error), but it shuts down before I can access the system and cut off any new software.
(Why Safe Mode doesn't work, is beyond me . . )
My theory is, if I can access it through the D: drive OS, I'll have more of a chance.
Problem is, the Admin folder is 'locked' because I password the hell out of everything. . .
It sounds reasonable and do-able.
Any ideas? Suggestions?
