I really need some help here. My system was getting slow and dirty so I decided I would start over with a fresh installation of XP Pro. So, I backed up about 100 GB of data onto my 200 GB hard drive. Then I booted off of a different disk (Disk0) that already had a running copy of Win2000. There, I inserted the XP CD-ROM and installed it onto Disk1. Now, I can see both Disk0 and Disk1 but Disk2 (the 200GB drive) says Dynamic Unreadable. How can I access this drive so I can gain access to my very important files. Thanks, Spark-Dogg.

How do I change the incorrect system or boot partition system-ID back to a type 0x42? I have installed DiskProbe and have viewed sector0 on the drive XP can't read but it makes no sense to me. Does anyone know how to tell it is type 0x42? and how to change it to 0x42?
