    I posted on here a few weeks ago seeking help on this problem, but seeing how I can't edit the title of that topic to make it a bit more... informative, I figured I'd just post a new topic.

    This was my first post, which gives the bare details:
    Since then I've done a few things. Boot disks were tried (created by other systems running XP Pro, boot.ini modified appropriately) but the computer just hung. Setup disks were also tried, but as Setup won't recognize the drive as NTFS I can't do anything about it.

    I found the Trinity Rescue Kit (found here in case you need more info), and burned that onto a CD. Ran it and tried a few things, like a virus scan. Whenever I tried to list the contents of the drive/otherwise try to read something from it, I got this error message:

    Now, knowing little about hard drives, I tried to find some information about the inodes (I think the command was ntfsinfo, but I could be wrong). Whatever it is I actually got may be irrelevant (I recognized the 5... heh), but here it is regardless:

    inode 5
    I know I installed XP on this drive sometime around June (so the 8th sounds about right), and the drive was screwing up at least a week or two before September 20th, so I think that's probably when I tried to fix the thing by copying ntdetect.com/ntldr to the hard drive. As for a randomly selection inode (75):
    Once again, any help you have is appreciated. This thing has been bothering me for a while now, and as much as I love Linux I'd like to get back into Windows soon. ;)
