I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem i'm having. Yesterday, I tried to split my Dell Dimension 5150 HDD using partition magic 8. Just under half way and it stops, saying it can't proceed - I restarted my computer only to find the dreaded Stop blue screen with the codes:
0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x86B2F150, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)
After reading many articles I have tried numerous ways to solve this problem:
Booting in Safe mode,
Using XP reinstall/recovery CD (after pressing install on the XP disk, via the terms and conditions, it states that I have to enter a partition or reformat the Disk) - using chkdsk i get the message 'The volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems',
I have run all the Dell tests and diagnostics which state the hard disk is fine,
The HDD is a western digital 1600 - I have run their own diagnostics which state the drive is ok,
I have also run several programs such as testdisk and partition recovery all to no avail.
I've reached a point now where I am willing to admit defeat and format the HDD, but there is some files I want from my hard disk. Is there anyway to do this; unfortuantly i only have to one drive in my computer - but i would be willing to purchase another if its possible to transfer the files on my problematic disk.
Any help would be superb
