A couple of days ago, my hard drive completely died. I didn't back up my work files, and would like to get them back. Is there any way I can get them back?
The hard drive is absoluetely unrecognized. The SATA cables are in perfectly but the hard drive is unrecognized. If I remove the hard drive (which had Windows Media Center installed) or if I leave it in, the message is the same, which is "please insert boot media" or something like that.
My friend suggested I place linux in the disc drive and try to get the files of there, because linux can run live without any hard drive, but the computer won't recognize the hard drive.
