Hi All - this question - before anyone reads on - is a 500 point question - the answer must be an "answer" that solves my problem not one that suggests a solution that does not work or does not help me (sorry if the rules are a little different but I want to make it clear - I need a workable answer that solves my problem)
Now the problem - I originally ran a Windows 2000 machine with SP2 installed. I had a primary drive "C" and another slave drive (IDE) "D".
About 1 year ago - I decided to see what Dynamic Disks were - I decided to change the "basic" disk D to a Dynamic disk and this caused no problem for me.
A few days ago - for reasons unknown to me - I decided to go back to Windows 98 SE - I backed all my dataup to drive "D" (the dynamic disk) - the set about formatting drive C and installing Windows 98SE - all went well
I decided to take some of the data from the backup drive "D" and an error came up "D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect Parameter. Then it struck me that this was a Dynamic Disk - ok so I plug it into a Windows2000 machine - same error
I look at the disk in Diskprobe and find the mbr is corrupted (or at least appears so) - so I move to the end of the volume (to get the backup copy of the mbr) to see that also appears to be corrupted - except a different message appears - "A Disk read Error ocurred - NTDLR is missing - NTDLR is compressed - Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to restart".
Simply - I need the info on this drive - and I dont know what to do -
So in a compressed view -
I have a dynamic disk drive I want to remount which has a (possibly) corrupted mbr
How can I fix it ??
Diskprobe recognises that there is a Dynamic Disk there - so how can I get the information of the disk ??
