    Hello everyone My HITACHI hard disk has 2 NTFS partitions. Suddenly it couldn't boot up. So i removed the hard disk and connected it to another pc (as cable select) POST could see both disks, but the computer stopped with the following error: Warning: The boot devices have been changed. BBS boot priority will be affected. Please enter setup to check. Press F1 to continue. Del to enter setup. I entered set up and it could still see both disks. When I left set up having saved the changes it couldn't the disk (HITACHI) So during the new POST the previous error appeared again. I booted with UBCD4WIN and tried to recover my files with testdisk tool. I could see the 2 partitions (boot * & primary) and i tried to copy all the files to the healthy hd (not the HITACHI) I managed to copy only some of them and most of the folders I recovered were empty. I couldn't use the WRITE command to fix the partition table to the HITACHI hd (PC should restart again and I had the same problem/BBS boot priority .....) . Another problem is that the HITACHI disk has a broken pin (the first one at top right corner pin --- near the jumpers) and i don't know if I have to fix it first. OS: WinXP Pro 2002 Gr HD: HITACHI ATA/IDE , 250 GB HD model: HDT722525DLAT80 (Deskstar) Partition: 2 NTFS (180 (OS) & 70 Gbytes (Data)) I would appreciate if anyone could help me Thanks
