Well, my hard drive died on me... and XP won't boot. Interestingly, when I pop the drive into an external enclosure, and turn it on inside of XP, it causes the computer to crash, and restart. I spent some time searching these forums for some help, but figured after about 15 minutes, that I should start my own post.
I would love to do this recovery myself, as the data is not worth what most companies are charging to do the service for me.
Can anyone offer me some pointers as to where I might begin, given the strange crashing symptom?
Any and all help appreciated.
