I have a PC I haven't touched in a long while, but I'd LOVE to be able to get it going again for gaming not to mention, I really want the data off of it. Here is the issue. System is EXTREMELY unstable. It boots, windows loads, crashes almost immediately. It then continues to crash without booting in to windows. To make matters more stressful, the HD setup is an IDE RAID 0. THe crash SEEMS to be hardware, but I can't be certain. I'd love to just reinstall the OS, but I need to get the data off the drive first. I've tried repair from windows CD (it runs XP) to no avail. I loaded another drive on the regular IDE bus, loaded the OS on it, but Windows didn't see the RAID drives, so I couldn't copy the data that way. I just really need to get the data off of it. Can I boot from the CD somehow, with networking enabled, and the drives loaded, so that I can just copy the info off that I need, and then reformat and reinstall?
