Eventually I have found the tool to FULLY ACCESS NTFS PARTITIONS !!!

So it's again possible to repair your harddisk, like if your hd was formatted
with FAT16/FAT32 - so if your system pops up in WinXP/Win2k saying:

"ntldr is missing....."


That's the tool I have been waiting for since I first saw NTFS file system.

Am I glad for that :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :alright: :alright: :alright:

oh, you now ask yourself: yeah, and did he forgot to mention the name of this great tool ???

it's called: NTFSPRO

The *ultimate* solution would be actually running a windows kernel with 100% working NTFS code. Like using ERD commander (also from winternals like ntfspro), or using http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ to make your own XP kernel based bootcd - nifty stuff.

Be VERY careful with those tools.
I once used their NTFS driver for Win98SE... It worked fine... but one day my Win98 crashed (which is a given) while I had the NTFS volume mounted read/write. And it did not die gracefully, like in NT4/2k/XP. Instead, my partition got damaged, and I had to use a rescue tool to salvage most of my data, then reformat it and reinstall.

That won't happen with BartPE though, as it uses the native XP kernel, and in a way that microsoft designed it for.
