Well, my husband installed an addition 100 GB hard drive. It was working just fine, but when I rebooted after windows update, It WOULD NOT boot. It would go to the dell screen, then go blank and say "Strike F1 to retry or F2 to go to boot menu". Finally I had to disconnect the new drive, then change the jumpers on the original drive to master (no slave). FINALLY I got it to boot using the original XP disk I have. I lost everything though. I managed to somehow recover all the old pictures and media I had lost last time it crashed. LOL. Anyway, I need to know how I can go about recovering the pictures and music from the other hard drive.
