I simply moved the SATA primary hard drive from a Windows PC to another computer so I could move the files. The drive would no longer boot up.
For more than 5 hours today I have followed every thread that might solve this problem; none have been successful. I have checked every permission for every use and made sure all are in the same group - no success. At least on a Mac, if you change the primary drive accessing the files is simple - just click on the drive. Unix, Linux, BSD (Mac) and Novell were all significantly easier.
