ok i am missing or the file is corrupted \windows\system32\config\system
now i know the easiest way to deal with this is well to wipe it and start fresh but... in my foolishness i have forgotten to back up every thing (ya ya i know stupid mistake) and being a writer and american otaku i have my stories and anime on there sure the anime can be replaced but my stories cant there is not another copy of some of the more recient ones anywhere... and though some may say simply because i didnt back anything up i deserve to lose every thing i would rather not.
so i pulled out the hard drive planted it in the one im using right now switched it over to slave mode and booted up the computer and dug through my files to find that as i had figured every thing was saved on a private desktop. meaning you cant access it....
alright so i pulled out my slave hard drive from my (shall we simply say broken for lack of a better term) computer put it in master mode and tried to boot it up... of course no operating system... i managed to put it back into slave mode and shove it in this one to save what was on there but it didnt have what i really wanted.
since my computer refuses to load with out this file i guess what im asking is it a compleate waste of time to hope that there might be some back door flaw or something that could be done to allow me to access a private desktop while a hard drive is in slave mode or should i give up this futile attempt at saving my 90 page story and the book i've started and all the other little short stories i have written and simply wipe it?
