Great news :D
I thought something wasn't right with burn didn't I say that mac? :D
I am so glad you got it figured out and was able to save your data. That has to be the most relieving feeling to know you didn't lose it all. :D
Your obvious appreciation message is all that most of us do this for. ;)
Please let us know if there is anymore we can help you with.

I bet it was that dammed encryption as per my post 3.
From that software site is this
If you use the Windows XP Recovery Console for administration purposes, you must install the PGP WDE drivers to the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console when the disk is encrypted otherwise the Recovery Console can not be used.

Which also explains why in Recovery Console he could run chkdsk, but NOT any commands to change anything.

Either way - your screenshot was worth a thousand words.

Spot on Mac... this is why I never advise to use this stuff. I know others disagree but without a good current backup this can be a problem everytime.
Good job on your assessment. :D
