- Win XP Pro with recovery console
- Dell Optiplex G240
- 1TB Samsung Spinpoint HD103SI (Green)
At the time the machine had been idle for around 5 weeks, so had around 100 updates to go through
During the last two restarts the machine froze before having a forced shut down with the power switch.
At present I have access to a Mac OSX 10.6.8, 2TB virtually clean external HD, decent Internet (for a change) but none of my normal CD's or other tools.
Recovery console was installed on the drive, but claims the MBR is corrupted.
I have Paragon NTFS for Mac, so I can read, write and transfer files with the aid of a Sharkoon external USB adaptor.
Also have a 4Gb USB drive.
All help appreciated.
