Boot the computer into Recovery Console, using your XP disk. When asked for XP installation type 1 (assuming there is only one operating system on the computer ). When asked for password type the administrator's password or press Enter if there is no password. Now, at the prompt, type fixmbr and press Enter. When all done type exit to go back to windows.

Im doing the Superscan now, the problem is I dont know what to do next Im doing the Superscan now. And Im having a hard time reading and understanding the help guide, maybe bcoz I havent slept for 1 day now.

If the software that you bought does not work successfully try to salvage the data with a recovery program. There are numerous free utilities such as Undelete Plus, PCI file Recovery, NTFile Recovery.

Use this link to download PCI File Recovery. Install it on a working computer. Move the affected disk to the computer with the installed program and follow the instructions. You can store the recovered data in an external storage device.

Please note that these processes can take a long time, depending on the amount of data and disk volume.

The scan went well sir, but I have a question. Is this software used for recovering data on a partition but not the partition itself? The thing is I want the partition to be active again and boot from it. All I see is all the data on the drive but I think its not going to repair it so that it will be bootable again. And if so my hard drive would still be unrecognizable and unbootable?

I am not sure I understood. Can you reach your data now? If yes, then I thought that the most pressing problem, losing your data is solved.

The programs I suggested must store to another partition or storage device.
