accessing windows formatted hd using linux?
Posted on 2004-08-09
Hi, i was messing around wiht my windows xp and now it wont load. i will freeze just before the first windows picture ever show up.
The problem i had was because i replaced one of the system files in the system32 directory.
There can be 2 solutions to this, i thought. one is to use another computer to access my hd and replace the file with the one i backed up, or i can access it using linux.
the second option, i have seen someone doing it before. that guy boot using a cd and was able to access my hd which was formatted in windows, and fix the windows from there.
the thing is, the person is thousands miles away and out of contact. i need to fix my computer asap.
can anyone guide me? i need to access my windows hd and replace the corrupted file with the one that i backup(original file)
or perhaps, is there a better way to fix?
