win xp help

I never done this with windows xp. I did it plenty of times with win 98.

A computer hard drive crashed with a copy of xp. I installed another windows xp to another hard drive. I want to copy the old files to the new hard drive. I cant use windows because the hard drive is bad and it reboots the computer everytime the computer is turned on.

So im doing this with the windows xp software. When i try making a directory, it says "access denied" it will only let me made directories in the windows folder/directory. Is that normal with xp?

What is a good utility to copy everything in a hard drive into one directory. Something like diskcopy?

thanks

I'm not exactly sure what configuration you have and are attempting to do, but you shouldn't typically be getting access deined errors when attempting to create folders.

Are you saying that you have a hard drive with Windows 98 and it crashed, so you installed XP to another drive on the same computer and now have the old drive attached as a secondary disk, and you CAN mount and read that data?

You should be able to drag-and-drop the data you want from the old drive to the new.

Are you logged into the XP workstation with the Administrator account or another account with administrative rights?

both hard drives are 80gb and have win xp.

I believe the computer got shocked? and it blew the motherboard and did something to the hard drive. So the hard drive will only read in DOS.

So im trying to copy all of the contents in DOS from one drive to the other. When i use the windows xp CD as a bootable. I get into the recovery console. That is where it wants me to log on as a administrator to access the windows directory.

WinPE or BartPE. I have a CD with BartPE on that I could help you with. You can boot to it and then read the drive. We use it all the time. It works great. I just can't let you keep the CD.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I'll look for a uh copy.
and its a non windows application?

the problem is the hard drive will not become a slave. the bad hard drive will want to stay a master, no matter what jumper i jump. And when I run the bad hard drive, it loads to the safe mode menu, then loads to windows. A hardware error blue screen flashes, then it reboots in matter of 1 second.

Can you perform a parallel install of Windows to the same hard drive?

I havn't tried that yet. That is what i usually do, or overwrite the original windows, which usually leaves the other directories alone.

This is my buddy's computer and I dont what to lose his info. So i want to try doing the copy first before anything else.

What originally happened was he would turn his computer on, and it would turn right off. Either his processor or his board got fried. I dont know if the hard drive was hurt by this, or the disk "image" is corrupted.

Use Bart PE. I use it all the time. You said something about the mother board. Did you have to switch it? There is some stupid thing with Windows XP. An XP loaded hard drive is only bootable on the exact same chipset of the hard drive controller. If you changed boards and the HD controller is different, this may be part of your problem.

I did change motherboards and chip.

I ran western digital hard drive diagnosis, and i got an error on the quick scan but no error in the extended scan. I'm also having issues of running the hard drive by itself. So it needs a slave to work properly.

Im trying what shad said and see if it will load into windows. Because now it is getting to the safemode option screen and crashing with the blue screen.

I got the old hard drive working on a different computer. And I put a different copy of xp on it too. If i changed the ram in the older computer, i would get a PCI.sys corrupt file. But it's pretty much fixed.
