Having endured a failure installing Vista's SP1, and then yet another while attempting to simply restore the system back in safe mode to pre-patch conditions, it is now left unbootable. At this point, I'm resigned to saving some important files, before reformatting altogether. To do this, I'm planning on removing the C drive from this system (running Vista HP), connecting it as a slave to another system (running WinXP) to access the folders and make copies. I would then replace the C drive back into its original machine, and reformat, using the backup disc which I believe is located on it's D drive. Should I anticipate any problems with this?
