Please help!

A few days ago I decided to defrag my C derive so that I can allocate more space to it. I have a 80GB drive, with C, E, and F drives. During the Defrag, the computer decided to restart without any warnings, heads up, etc…After the reboot, the problems started…

The first time, it wanted a Boot Disk, so I used my Windows XP Pro CD. It would not load any other way. In the Repair Section, it will not recognize my C drive.

So I went out and bought a new Drive so that I can do the Slave/Main set-up and at least take all the documents that I desperately need from the Bad HD. Did the nececery configurations (did not partition the new HD) and used the Bad HD as the slave drive. I can see the drive in the Hardware Controle and Computer Management windows. I have:

Disk 0
Basic
76.32 GB
Online

Disk 1
Basic
76.33 GB
Online

(The Bad HD is Disk1). Under the Computer Management, it says that Disk 1 is “Unallocated” compared to Disk 0 which says “Healthy (System)”.

I tried again to use my CD drive as the main, the Bad HD as the slave and booted the computer to do a Windows XP Repair…but to my horror, it will not show C drive …

HELP……..
