I'm Saved, and am new to this site.
I'll try and make this short, but if questions,
please ask. Thanks
I have a hard-dirve, partitioned = c, d, & e.
Running widows ME.
Somehow, when turning on computer, it didn't do anything.
At one time I had on XP....long time ago.
Since I had to reinstall everything, windows....
this is the sequence.....
1. reinstalled, not Me, but XP
2. after a short time a glitch
3. Couldn't get rid of, didn't know how
4. went to DOS prompt c:\windows
5. deleted all of windows
6. restarted computer with ME disks
7. no operating system
8. won't do anything.
so i went out and bought another hard-drive.
1. was told it would move partitions up, and not loss information.
2. installed ME on new hard drive.
3. old hard drive c became d
no old d drive anywhere
e is still there.
so then thought i could recover with a start up disk.
well, there is no windows on old hard drive, and i'd
unplug new hard drive, having only my old hard drive.
not sure what is in a boot-disk.
then (i have read so much!) there was a place that said
to make an *.ISO cd. got the free program to do that,
but don't know what a ISO is. doesn't say how to find it!
have been thinking of ways to recover my old hard-drive.
looked on the net for different recovery programs.
some show all three drives on old hard drive.
the c: partition isn't labeled....but information shows up.
problem is, some don't show anything for my old d: drive,
just things that was moved there from C: drive.
now that i have made everyone confused, how do i recover
windows from my old hard-drive, config, autoexec, etc?
even if i restored xp or me.
any suggestions would be helpful.
