Here is my dilema. I had adaptec 1200a with two hard drive stripped (yes i know not to smart)
I have no backup of my data. I was running Windows 2000 Professional
My computer fell off my desk and ever since I've had stop error 27...
When I attempt to access recovery console I get stop error 24 on NTFS.sys
I took the computer to COMPUSA cause I didn't have the time to spend on this at the time and they told me (for $100 bucks) they couldn't fix it and I would have to pay 1000's of dollars to a data recovery place. So, I purchased spinrite and ran spinrite on the drives individually. Spinrite found one spot of unrecoverable data, nothing else. I ran level 5 spinrite on both drives, after buying a new RAID card. The same error happens and when I attempt to access recovery console I get a stop 24 on NTFS. I installed Windows XP (Home Edition) on a seperate Hard Drive and put that on the primary IDE. After installed the RAID card the computer won't boot at all. I tried changing the slot of the card, but it still won't boot (even in safe mode). Currently I am installing Windows 2000 Server onto the new hard drive, but I am afraid that the moment I install the RAID Card the computer will start choking on the corrupted NTFS file. Does anyone have a solution?
