Long story, its interesting though! I began messing around with the OSx86 project, installing OSX on my PC. It went rather well, except for lack of driver support. There was one thing I forgot: back up my MBR. So my Windows C: drive is intact for the most part, but I can't boot into it. I was told that my MBR would be restored if I began WinXP installation (installing to a fake "WINDOWS_backup" dir) then when it reboots, boot into the old XP and not the setup again. Well that didn't work - because I got an error in the Winstallation and now I cannot install XP, cannot repair, cannot fixmbr or anything in the Recovery Console and nothing works. I got an "ultimate boot cd", it kind of works. Its really slow, but I havent been able to accomplish anything with it. Has a lot of tools but I couldn't even get any of the explorers to see my files. I figured I would copy & past them onto a partitioned drive and just say F that drive - format it. I can NOT lose the files on that drive and I'd be seriously devastated if I lost them. I asked for it though :dead: Anybody know of any tools that I can use to fix my installation or at least copy some important files from one partition to another?
