I suggest you use TEST_DISK from cgsecurity, its free and very effective wiki it first, caution though as it can write over the data.

Personally using this software for about 4 HDD's data recovery very succesful. Learn how to use it, that data on your computer would still be there just try to rebuild the path to get to them <wink>

1. chkdsk
2. testdisk
3. fix MBR
4. use system restore and back up's for the MASTER OS that you would connect your HDD to
4. repair ntldr and ntdetect, after you install SYSTEM RECOVERY
