The stock "Win XP CD" should NEVER be used to access an over 127GB volume or drive. Without SP1 slipstreamed in, you can't repair such an install.
I did a clean install of Win XP Pro with SP2 in a PC with Intel's D845WN board and a 200G HD (one partition only). Installed Intel's chip set drivers after the OS.
After using for some days and transfering data from other HDs (some 140GB), the PC when crazy and just restarted but stoped right before booting. Started the PC with Win XP CD and Recovery Console, but did not ask for the admin PW and to my surprise chkdsk showed an empty disk. Is there a way to recover the lost data? Thks
