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?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
