    I've a Dell XPS 1530M with a fujistsu 320 GB HDD. It has failed with error 0142 and status #79. It won't boot up at all.

    However I plugged it into my desktop and have full access to all the files! Weird or is it?

    I've asked Dell and they says it's just failed and are not helpful, does anyone know what the score is with this drive?

    Can I mirror it to the new drive and get it to work without reinstalling software - if so how?
