Hello. I've used Paragon HDM with XP several times to restore my C drive when my system wouldn't boot. But I had a problem booting today so I booted to Paragon's Rescue CD. After choosing "Simple Restore Wizard" while connected to an external drive, the screen went black for a long time. Then I disconnected the external drive to reduce the no. of factors which could be a problem. I rebooted to the CD & chose "low graphics" & "safe" mode. Again, the system hung on disk scanning even though no external drives were connected. I rebooted to Safe Mode with Command Prompt & ran "CHKDSK /R". But after rebooting, the system is hanging at the Windows logo. Does anyone have any suggestions which would enable me to run CHKDSK to make sure there aren't any HD errors or to find out what else could be preventing Paragon from being able to scan the internal drive? TIA.
