I have been given this pc to look at because it will not boot up into windows - reaches the BSOD page fault in non paged area and restarts. Using the XP installation disk results in the same screen after selecting R for recovery console or pressing enter to install windows.
Using an emergency boot disk and fdisk the partition info shows the C partition 1 to be the HP recovery section and C partition 2 to be NTFS, the active partition where XP is installed.
Using the DOS dir command to view the files on the C drive only results in the directory listing of the HP recovery section. The other files/directories are not visible.
Does anyone know how I can view the rest of the files and gain access to the windows directory?
BTW the HP recovery section appears to be corrupt - there is no response when trying the F12 key during boot up.
