sounds like either you were unlucky enough to have your hdd fail or the filesystem on it is kaput. personally i would bite the bullet and try to re-install windows on this one.

edit: also moving this to hardware troubleshooting.

Yep that sounds like a windows failure to me. That happened to my friend and the only thing I could do for him was re-install windows.

Nope, not windows failure. I'm back up and running. Here is what I did:

Booted to xp disc and ran repair utitility. This just took me to a c: prompt. Typed dir and got the file list.... which was the files on my external hard drive. So I rebooted, went into bios, and saw that my raid array was 2nd in line for boot disk priority. I did not change this so I have no idea how it happened, or if that would even cause my error. I thought if it saw one disk was not a windows install it would move on to the next, guess not. Moved raid to first in list, and it booted fine and up and running again.

How company of heroes hanging would translate to that I have no idea, but i'm up and running fine now....
