I am fixing a windows pc where there is obvious HD damage, I can't start it or use revovry console or it shuts off. Also no other computers detected it other than the one it's in. I am resorting to using a linux cd to use to recover it. I booted to a live ubuntu 7.10 and it showed a drive under Places called hp_pavillion which is what it is called. But it wont mount, not even w/ a force. Any suggestions, or is this hd just too messed up to boot? I just need to mount it and get the my documents folder and thats it. Help ASAP thx
