Restoring files on a hidden partition
My friend has asked me to take a look at his laptop which wont boot correctly, it will get to the Windows screen and then a BSOD will appear and the process will start again, looping the startup process.
I have told him that the best way to resolve the issue is to format the computer and reinstall windows and start again from scratch. Here's where the problem lies because he has no recovery discs or anything.
There is a hidden partition which contains what looks like an image of the original folders that would have been installed, i.e. Documents and Settings, Program Files, Windows and a few others.
Here is my question. How can i get the files off of the hidden partition and onto the Primary Partition? The hidden partition doesnt seem to be formatted.
Any software that i can use to clone the hidden partition onto the other.
