tried safe mode gets stuck there too.
tried hirens boot disc no icons up on screen -i guess it can't seem to find harddrive
tried recovery console to do system restore but just stays on examing(harddrive)
i read on here about making a disc (german) to do a chkdsk (tools/ntfs4dos/chkdsk)
but it starts then stops and you see the prompt. x> actually it may not even have started the chkdsk maybe can't find the drive although recovery console new it was a 500gb drive so it found something.
tried to find a harddrive checker i could get on disc but can't seem to find one i'm using hirens boot disc using another harddrive that doesn't have windows working so i am very limited as to what i can do.
main thing is to find out if flies are still on there.
