Help me with a mates PC. He's got a Maxtor SATA II Drive don't know the size. I've been round tonight to try and sort out the problem. Symptoms etc: PC working fine last night and turned off, not working this morning. Tried to go into safe mode - not available. Drive show up in Bios. When booting things flash past quickly reporting errors then I get a screen saying press F10 to restore. Pressed F10 it boots into windows with a dos box saying pagefile.ini missing and starts to count up but fails at 28% each time. This promts a reboot and it starts all over again. Any ideas cos they have important data they need on the HDD, I could download a boot disk but then they would loose their data. Am I missing something, would I be able to connect it to my PC and recover the data?
