I hve a 200gig maxtor SATA hdd, which I was running as my master, and I believe that I have a boot sector virus. I am unable to boot into windows, or safe mode for that matter. Upon trying to use the recovery console, the computer restarts to "avoid damage" upon trying to access the drive. I have a lot of data that I was hoping to save. I have had this exact same problem before, perhaps 6 months ago, I brought it to a computer repair, and they successfully saved my data, and were able to reformat the drive for me. My main question is, how can I access the drive to save my data? Even when I try to boot windows from a different drive, it will not boot if the infected SATA drive is connected. My motherboard brags that it supports "PC Cillin Anti-virus", which led me to believe that I could disable that in my bios, however, I could not find anything in the bios that would allow me to do so. Can anyone help me? Thank you.
