Yup its F'ed
Windows install could not see any vrs. of windows installed on the hard drive(*)
and the repair console could not see anything.
Also i booted into my other hard drive with Vista on it, it can see one 250GB but the Other its cant see any Free space, it needs to format it.
So looks like im going to be using my lappy and vista for a bit till i figure out what i want to do.
A: Keep on trying to get it back.
B: F**K it and just format both drives and reinstall and run a disk scan for bad drive.
C: Run a disk scan on each drive and see if it find one thats bad and then RMA time
o well, looks like i have a fun weekend a head of me
On a side note, im starting to like my Free copy of Vista
It runs ok, i bet it would run better on a Raid 0 setup
and i figured out the stupid install and other user restrictions
Man What a PITA those are
