Lost partition

Post by :FI:Sneaky_Russian » Mon Nov 26, 2012 3:03 am

Lost my W7 partition after a routine reboot.

20 hours in and running some tests from Ultimate Boot disc.

4 more hours and back on stream =D]

..but not quite ... more crashes! Fair to say the HD is truly clusterphqd and each restore attempt just degraded it more.

Solution = replace

is it hd or sd?

If sd some of the recent windows updates are incompatible with the sd firemware. There are loads of firmware patches available.

As you have a new rig did you try and mount the driver via usb once booted on the new rig ? you may be able to access the driver and get some data off.
