ok, so this is my problem. my computer will not boot up to windows. and i cant enter safe mode. trust me, i cant. originally my computer stopped at the second screen that checks your drives and stops at "verifying dmi data pool". well and thats all i could get to. so i need the files off the drive so i can recover my hard drive and put the all my files back on. i am pretty sure that a virus caused this. so maybe there is a disk i can run off the start to check that.
now problem two! i know... fun stuff.... so i did a chkdsk under recovery console to see if there was anything even on the drives. There is only 48 Gb out of 160Gb. so yes. there is stuff there. but now when i boot up my comp i get a system error message thing saying
"Windows could not start becasue the following file is missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copyu of the above file"
so now what do i do with this?
