I have a laptop with a 30GB HD that boots to the "Starting Windows" screen and then flashes a blue screen and reboots. When I tried to use an XP disk to repair or reload the OS it tells me that it sees a partion but it is not useable and in order to load the OS I would need to delete and recreate it. I also tried to get the contents off by adding it as a secondary HD on a desktop but it also sees a partion but says that it is invalid. Since it will boot to windows and then stop I feel that their should be a way to get the data off but I don't know how to get to it. The client also loaded Norton Go Back a few months ago but never used it but I was thinking that may have something to do with it. My thinking is that the drive boots with a certain translation but when I use a boot disk or another PC that drive translation is lost. Any ideas?
