Default My computer gets to the xp loading screen and restarts.

I've tried a lot of different stuff and it still doesn't work. I don't want to reformat the hard drive 'til I can back up the hard drive. But that's been proven impossible since 3 other hard drives that all OS's installed don't work and just give the "NTDLR is missing" error, which is understandable. So I put in the XP disc and and ran DOS and hit fixmbr, didn't work, and fixboot, which didn't work either. I was trying to get to the recovery console, but it just restarted before I could. The hard drive is set to boot first, except when I booted the cd player first for the xp cd. The computer is a old emachine but it has valuable info that my mother needs so what can I do to fix it?

Hi and welcome to Computer Forums

I am new here but I am one of the Analysts People at my other forum. Hopefully I can assist you . Okay, if you can get to another computer you can take the HD you need data from and put the jumpers to make it a slave drive. Then you can retrieve the data by connecting it into another computer and running it into Windows.

Well I tried to back it up and it did back up but it said it failed.
This is what failed:
"Backup started on 10/7/2007 at 1:33 PM.

and:

"The file \System Volume Information\...\snapshot\_REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWAR E did not verify.

The file \System Volume Information\_restore{5DAFEA27-47D0-437A-A710-F5EA02D45CE2}\RP153\A0033049.dll did not verify."

But the backup is still there, so if I reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows, could I put the back back on the hard drive with out any errors and get it to run again?

Default Re: My computer gets to the xp loading screen and restarts.

You'll have to take permission of the drive, and then try backing up. This happened to me when I slaved my other drive. You'll have to do it within Safe Mode, and go to the Security tab of the drive, and add your user account to the list of permissions.

Edit: How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP There ya go.
