Last response: in Windows XP

Ok so a file in my system32 folder in my old computer was corrupt, so it wouldn't boot, but i still had files i needed in the hard drive.

I bought an external hard drive casing and took my hard drive out of my old computer. I plugged it into my old computer and found all the files needed and copied them over.

I have a spare copy of windows xp laying around to reinstall onto my old computer, but i know that if i do this, all of my drivers will be wiped.

I need some way to copy them over from the hard drive while it is plugged into my new laptop so that i may transfer the drivers over when it reinstalls.

How do i do this?

you should be able to repair your current installation of XP.

make sure you do a chkdsk on the old drive first
