That is just weird. Adding the drive as a slave and jumpered properly shouldn't have eaten the MFT like that. With this new information, I'm beginning to think it may not be that adapter, but something else in your PC. Did you have the drive properly recognized in the BIOS before you booted?

Sorry if that was relevant information.

This is exactly what I did. My two CD drives are on the IDE channel, and I pulled the slave and added the drive. During the normal boot, the HDD showed up with the master CD and I continued to the splash screen. I never made it to the GUI before the BSOD and reboot.

I bought the adapter that night and tried it on a couple of drives I wanted to check (worked great), and then tried it on the other drive.

Tell ya what....why don't you make a post in the Free Clinic about this issue with the HD's and see what some other folks have to say. I'm not an expert with HD's and MFT's, but something does sound screwy. I just can't believe it was all coincidence. Also, I would link back to this post so they can look at some history.

Ya, check again. We don't deal with KNOPPIX in there, nor do we fix macs.

Back to the drawing board.

Fack, my bad. I thought he was just using Knoppix to recover his software and info.

EDIT: So wait a minute, if you're using Chkdsk, and it's NTFS, and you're also using BartPE, was this a Linux or Windows install you're trying to recover?

No, no...

The Linux was just to try and recover file brought on by a Windows problem.

That is why I moved the discussion to the Free Clinic.

No Linux issues, so this thread has served it's purpose.

Sorry if that was not clear.

Yea..I was a little unclear as to why post in here since the linux part was only dealing with mounting the drive and the main issue was cluster repair.

Running GetDataBack now... :cry:
How did it work for you? I have used it on at least two occasions with failed drives and gotten back at least 97% of everything on the drive.


I wanted to follow up on this, and to add that GDB recovered all 358gb of data, and none of it looks to be compromised.

The scan took a full 48 hours, but it did recover all of it.
