STOP error 0x00000024

I have an older WinXP PC that will no longer boot.  It gets a STOP Error 0x00000024.  I removed the hard disk and placed it in a SATA dock on a 2nd PC to get the data off and Windows doesnt recognize it.  So I cannot chkdsk it or anything.  What tools are out there to attempt a NTFS repair?  Beyond the old CHKDSK /r

I just want a shot at some of the data on the drive. Don't care if it ever boots up again.

i would first make sure the basics are ok - ram and disk - so i suggest to run a diag first on these; you can use the ubcd for it (see below).
if these are ok :
put the disk back in your system, and run a repair install :

Hardware diagnostic CD    UBCD
 i suggest the UBCD  to run some diags first - to be sure about the basics
go to the download page, scroll down to the mirror section, and  click on a mirror to start the download
Download the UBCD and make the cd   <<==on a WORKING PC, and boot the problem PC from it
Here 2 links, one to the general site, and a direct link to the download

since the downloaded file is an ISO file, you need to use an ISO burning tool
if you don't have that software, install cdburnerXP :

If you want also the Ram tested - run memtest86+ at least 1 full pass,  - you should have NO errors!
For disk Diagnostics run the disk diag for your disk brand (eg seagate diag for seagate drive)  from the HDD section -  long or advanced diag !  (runs at least for30 minutes)                        ultimate boot cd             download page

here is how i handle bad disks :

Assuming you did all of the things in the above post then you can safely assume that your hard drive is toast.

If it is not making strange noises it may just be the electrics on the board that are causing the problem.

If it's making the strange noises then you have a mechanical problem.

If not try this method

Put the drive in a zip-lock bag and gently place it in the deep freeze in the lowest, coldest area you can find.

Leave it for 12-24 hrs and then put the drive in another PC or enclosure (putting it directly in another PC is better and see if the bios sees it - If it can then boot into windows.

If your connectors are large enough put a baggie full of crushed ice under it and on top of it.

If you can see the drive and it can see the data - copy it quickly to the pc's main hard drive - Do not try using a USB stick if you can avoid it - you will need bus speed to get the data off ASAP.   If some of the data copies before the bad drive crashes. Just Freeze it again and retry . Keep track of what was copied so you're not copying everything twice. Use an intelligent copy program like Robocopy  or even use xcopy -
