Parents bought a new comp, and needed some info off of the old drive. Took it home with me and said I'd do it, as their new pc has no ide.
HD won't boot. I can read it from my drive, but their drive reboots almost as soon as their xp boot image appears.
So I tried an xp repair...the keeping old data version...but that failed....several times. It simply said repair complete...reboot etc etc, but a reboot is the same as before, ie maybe not even see the xp flash screen and reboot.
This is really bugging me....
Now, you want to know why I can't just copy data onto their new pc from within my OS??
They have a paid sub to norton. Their new norton on their new pc won't accept their old reg details. I read that I need to unreg the old AV so the new one can use it. But it seems the old drive is fubar, so I can't...
My mother has emailed them, but they sent her back installation help files
Any ideas people??
