Yes, I know about that. Actually, she had this problem a few years back with this very computer and at that time I did use the recovery feature. Problem was, it reset everything as it was upon delivery so she lost all files anyway. This is what I wanted to prevent this time. I'll try see if I can get it to change partition (although it worked fine yesterday). Otherwise I'll look into the live CD option. I'll keep you posted. Thanks.

I didn't make this clear but it's not my computer. I always keep backups of important files. The person with this computer got a similar problem a few years back and lost a great deal of files. I told her about backups and she claims to have been doing her homework. So if we're lucky she has all files backed up somewhere. What I'm preparing for is if she doesn't.

Not that easy I'm afraid, there's data on there that I need to get. I haven't tried a live CD yet but I'm about to seeing as we're running out of options.

First off I gotta say that it takes forever to load the xp cd. It seems the disk analyzis is taking forever. When I finally get through it doesn't recognize anything, it says "Invalid Disk - There's no disk in the unit". But when I tried it yesterday it recognized all three partitions just fine (XP, miniNT (not sure what that is), HPRECOVERY).

Yes that's what I mean. My Windows XP CD does not recognize the xp insallation. Also, the computer does not detect any operating system anymore on the disk. However, the disk itself is detected and indicated as healthy by the BIOS. I have not made any changes to the BIOS, except to turn POST-diagnostics display on and that was done just now to check if the harddrive was detected or not.
