i DID: Please download ARCDC from Artellos.com.
Double click ARCDC.exe
Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: Windows Professional SP2 & SP3
You will be prompted with a Terms of Use by Microsoft, please accept.
You will see a few dos screens flash by, this is normal.
Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Extra Files.
Please copy the codebox below into the text area.
Quote
C:\windows\system32\userinit.exe

The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC
Your ISO is located on your desktop

Ok lets try hard drive diagnostics then and see if it finds the hard drive.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, try the Hitachi DFT CD Image version of the software

Thanks to Broni for the instructions

OK this is turning into a pain in the tail end now. Lets try a different method.


using the steps from post 18 above restart with the Arcdc disk in the cdrom drive.
When you get to the the first prompt type in chkdsk /r and then click Enter.
Note the space between k and /
Let me know what happens.

I believe you need to click R to get to the Recovery Console.
