In the last month my computer started generating an error at boot time with 'PBR for descriptor 2...done'. I contacted Dell about the problem and i was told to unplug all devices execpt mouse and keyboard. Still no luck. Then Dell support told me to contact a professional data recovery company or use the OS repair disk to wipe the system. As the OS boot disk does not fire up (after changing boot sequence) I have looked into Knoppix for an answer. Unable to access my harddisk and linux commands not working, i have been forced to send for help. After hours of googling i still have no luck because most answers just tell you to drag and drop the files you want to save from HD to USB, but as i cannot find any files on the HD, this is not possible for me.
I was hoping someone could tell me how i could completely format my windows and start over, because i have given up on recovering the data. Maybe my harddisk is is so corrupt that everything has been deleted already?
I would be pleased if someone could help me out here. (if this is in the wrong forum,sorry)
