Help for my NT!
Posted on 1998-12-29
Somehow My NT Server machine won't boot any more this morning. I have some very important information in the Hard Disk that I can not lost! The hard disk I have is a SCSI hard disk with Adaptec AHA2940 controller. The File System I use is NTFS. When it try to boot, it say the "hal.dll" file maybe lost or corrupt. I try to replace this file, then I got another message say I miss another file. I tried to create a NT boot disk and copy the require file, such as Boot.ini, NtDetect.com,ntldr...etc. It won't boot either and I got the same error message!
I try to put the HD to another NT Server and want to got the content in the Disk. However, I got see the C drive(the 1st item in the following table) and the D drive(the 4th item) but not the NT Stripe/Vol Set such as the 3rd and the 5th item where I store the important data in there!
I use a Partition Magic 4.0 boot disk to see the volumes in that disk. I got the following:
Volume Type Size Used Free Status Pri/Log
*: NT Stripe 1,341.3 1,341.3 0 Active Primary
*: Extended 2,996.5 2,996.5 0 None Primary
*: NT Stripe 251 251 0 None Logic
*:SQL NTFS 1,027.6 151.2 876.4 None Logic
*: NT Stripe 1,717.9 1,717.9 0 None logic
I don't care if I can fix this NT server. All I want this moment is the data I stored 3rd and 5th item in the above table. Is there any way to backup the data or copy it to somewhere else??? I really really need someone's help!!!
