Hi, I downloaded diskpatch demo and created log, but need some "handholding".   Hope you can help.
The current state is the computer won't boot windows and error=no system disk or disk i/o error.   Unfortunately I can't give the specifics of how the condition deteriorated.   Here's what I do know:   Hp Pavilion with 160G Samsung HD with XP OS.   Looked at cables and found broken SATA power connector which I konow how this happened.   Replaced this cable and still had same error message.   Switched data cable to next SATA spot on motherboard and still had same error message.   I researched HP support site for HD hardware problems and downloaded "PC Doctor offline diagnosis" and made bootable CD to run hardware diagnosis on the broken computer.   Passed all functional i/o tets and HD tests - HD short test and HD long test.   So I'm fairly confident this is a software problem.    I ran diskpatch demo and from what I read in your tutorials I think the log points to 1 "B" rating and 2 "A" ratings, but I am new to this and don't really understand exactly what I'm looking at.    Can you give me your opinion?   Thanks.

Hello,

Currently there's only one partition, and it appears to be the HP Recovery partition. It's active but appears corrupt. probably because the boot sector contains incorrect values, although in itself it's a valid boot sector.

Scan reveals some more partitions, but the 'picture' looks odd because if you'd restore the 2 most likely candidates there'd be a large gap between them.

Run a partition repair, and select item 002 and 003. That should then give you a small FAT32 partition, a gap (unpartitioned space), and an NTFS partition.

Ideally you'd then try to access the partition to see if all is there. For the NTFS partition you will need something that can access NTFS, like a Linux Knoppix CD. If the contents of the NTFS partition look intact, set it active and see if it will allow you to boot.

Hello,  Thank you for your help.   Sorry this took so long to respond, but it has been "all work and no play" for a while.   

I did purchase Diskpatch and did follow your recommendations.   I ran a partition repair with Diskpatch and then removed the hard drive and put it in a "BLACX" SATA USB docking station on another computer.   I was able to see and successfully download valid files from the NTFS partition.    (So I backed up a lot of files before going on with the repair - well worth the money I paid for Dispatch).    I reinstalled the hard drive and set the NTFS partition to active with Diskpatch and as you predicted the computer booted up into Windows.    Most files and apps appear to be intact.   

The smaller FAT32 partition looks to have some valid file names, but they don't make any sense to me.   But that's okay because now the computer can be used again and the FAT32 partition doesn't seem to have any role in the normal operation.    Thanks again for the technical support on this site.   Best regards.   Smiley
