Hi Guys, I am unable to get onto windows xp pro, after booting up I get a black screen with an error message saying "Boot failure system halted". I have tried going through the f8 boot menu and although the system recognises the hard drive no matter how many times I try and boot the same error message appears. I have tried windowsxp recovery console to no effect also tried plugging my hard drive into a different machine and booting up with my hard drive as the slave but still no joy.??? I am getting desperate now as all i want to do is get my baby's photos off the drive and then reinstall windowsxp onto the hard drive. Can anybody help???
