when starting up my laptop i get the following error: \Boot\BCD. Status: 0xc000000e9
no problem i got this
i insert my windows 7 dvd but it gets stuck on loading screen
so i take it out, wipe it and try again, same result
ok probably bad dvd
burn windows 7 on brand new dvd
same problem
try to put windows 7 on usb and boot from usb
it actually works
i click on repair computer and it gets stuck on that loading screen??
at this point i am seconds away from throwing my laptop out the window
flip laptop and remove the hdd
remove 20 cables from desktop and connect to sata
when booting up windows freezes and after a few minutes it unfreezes but does not recognize the second hdd
however when i go to bios it does see there are 2 hard drives
what?

how do i recover my files?

We all learn the "backup lesson" the same way.

1- Get your hands on a tool called HDD Regenerator and use it. (recommended)

or

2- Connect the disk as secondary on your desktop (do not boot from it).
if it's visible in my computer, right click on it, properties, tools, check now, scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.

1) It will take a while to finish, and will detect and try to repair non physically damaged bad sectors on the disk.
2) it will also take a while to finish and will detect and mark bad sectors as bad (disallowing write on them).

1 is the recommended option.

Try this and tell me what happens.

Regards.

It is early to talk about data recovery!!! I don't see anything that suggests that data on that disk is lost.

You may connect it as secondary (not the main boot disk) and try to access it from my computer, data may be all tehre.

However i strongly suggest doing one of the steps in my post above first as i suspect bad sectors on the disk, in this case you will face error messages while trying to copy your data.
