But the documentation to get to this step doesn't match what the program currently does. If you have a hard drive that you don't need to recover files from, you can prep it by booting to a drive utility by the drive manufacturer.You first must delete If you can't remember just keep going (What if it was not named Windows but WINNT like in NT4 or 2000?) . 5. From what I gather, the data files aren't affected by the NTFS nor FAT32 formatting, and so wouldn't corrupt any drive to which they're copied.
This problem spread to any drive I would hook up in the other bay, whether it had an OS or not, and from those to others (6, to be exact). tried to use a couple IDE drives ( that had been in an external case ) to get a good backup and then unplugged the 160g SATA. when I tried to Check boot path and disk hardware. Can someone post the correct steps?

Follow the recovery console instructions from here: http://www.5starsupport.com/faq/booting.htm#7-9 Then try using the floppy again. Try it first, if it was the wrong selection, you will likely get one of these four errors: 1.

One of the disks it lists, and one of the drives on it, will need to be marked as active. PS If you do have to do a reinstall, you will need to reinstall sp3. Go Back.

working backward tosee if any of these are causing my problems. Thanks. Right click on that drive letter and select "Mark Partition as Active", you may first have to convert the partition to a Primary partition before you can mark it as active. Go Back.
Could not read from the selected boot disk. Win98 can simply be installed on top of itself to get it running again.
