I have a laptop that is running Vista. I got the blue screen of death and now when I power up the laptop I get no OS found. I have tried to repair the OS, but with no luck. I am going to try and format the drive, but I need the files off the drive.
I tried to connect the drive to my desktop, but the desktop computer running Windows XP Pro does not see the drive.
The drive is a SATA drive and I am using a old external hard drive housing with a SATA to IDE adaptor to connect the drive to the housing. The housing is connected to the desktop computer via USB.
Can anyone tell me how to get my computer to read this drive so I can pull the files off of it?
