Gentlemen, what am I missing here?
The problem: Corrupted MBR on my XP PRO desktop.
Went to use the recovery console but discovered my ex-roommate apparently walked of with it.
Steps I've taken so far:
1- Downloaded RECUVA application to my WIN98SE desktop.
2- Installed the XP HDD as slave.
3- Setup assigns 98 HDD as drive 0 and XP HDD as drive 1
4- Windows sets master to C:, DVD to D:, CD to E: but doesn't recognize the SLAVE.
5- Tried all combinations of jumper settings with no luck.
NOTE: MASTER is 80gig Western Digital and SLAVE is 20 gig Quantum.
Is it simply that the FAT32 MASTER can not recognize the NTFS SLAVE? And, if so, is there any work around that I can employ?
Thanks so much in advance for any advice.
