Internet Fixes Question Of The Week!
IF01122 57 Vista Run Commands
Q. My computer, running XP Home , exhibited no problems until one day when I booted it as usual, and it refused to boot into XP. I installed a new HD and loaded XP Home on it. Then rebooted with the old HD in the secondary master position. Any attempt to access files on the old HD shows a message that the HD is not formatted. Other utility programs(Norton) show the HD has no partition. What happened and what can I do to retrieve my files, favorites, and Thunderbird E-mails?? Thank You for any advise or suggestions.
