Windows Vista will not boot

#1 Post by trotts19 » 23 Aug 2014, 16:48

Hi, my old laptop will not boot into Vista.

I've managed to D/L the files to another drive because I believe the HDD is toast.

I've uploaded the testdisk log in hopes it may be salvageable

Whether or not anyone can help, I thank you for your efforts

Did you try to use a Live-CD like Knoppix, if you can't boot?
