Need more info. What is the OS? Exactly what meesage do you see when trying to boot? Can you F8 into Safe Mode? Do you have the boot discs for this particular OS (if not, they are downloadable)?

I had it in my pc and decided to transfer the HD to another pc THEN the error im not sure what file was it but it says it cant start windows. next bootup it wont read the HD. then i tried restalling WinXP, it says it doesnt recognize any partition so i tried to make one. I made a partition of only 10mb. it still says i got 78GB so of used space. i hope those wer my files. what do u guys think?

At the msprompt - try scanreg /repair. You should be able to pick from several back-ups of your registry. It's worth a try.

First install the hard drive as a slave. Every access every write to that drive will destroy data.

Do not install anything on that drive.

Next get a good file recovery program. For that matter get two.

Don't go by what the recovery program cost. Go by what your data is worth.

Remember install nothing to that drive.

Good Luck
