My setup, 2 HDs- a 20(A) and a 30GB(B), running WinXP 2600 from B. I moved all of my files from A to B, formatted and did a clean install of XP on A, and then attempted to recopy them to A. Because of both drives having a valid OS, I was trying to change the logical/primary designations and messed up somewhere. I ended up formatting A and losing a lot of data, but B is sitting there being reported as BAD in PartitionMagic. I fixed the mbr error that I had been getting by using the recovery console, but I can't figure out how to make it visible to recover files from.
