    Due to power Fail, Hard Disk on Windows Server 2003 is corrupted. the hard disk is showing on BIOS Menu, but dosn't start the windows, tried connecting the hard disk to another system and open it, it goes up to windows loading page, and keeps on loading windows, never starts the windows up when i connect the hard disk in to a working system. i really need the files in this hard disk, is there a way i can take my files backup from this?


    thanks

    Download hirens boot cd, put it in your machine, and either:

    1. Clone the drive
    2. Recover the files
    3. Make an image of the drive to sift through later
    4. Check the drive for errors and attempt recovery

    firstly place another hard disk primary to can make ram drive because your MBR was damaged

    then boot hirens recovery tools ..

    and you can use the official factory hard disk recovery program..

    Or any LiveCD Boot .. it's the best attemp

    see if one of the imaging/cloning tools can recognize the drive
