Hi, im new to this forum but i need some help.

I installed all the vista updates, computer restarted, and it was at the "configuring updates" screen, i went and took a shower, came back and the screen was black and stood liek that for 5 minutes, so i restarted. AFter the restart it posted the green lines loading thingie came up than BSOD'd and closed, happened 3 times, happen when i tried going into safemode, even happened when i tried booting from the Vista x64 disc. Then just now i hooked it up to my brothers computer, my harddrives that is, so i could recover my files than freshinstall. When they were hooked up my brothers computer would BSOD too, even though i was booting off of his RAID array......
How can i get my files off the discs and clear them so i can fresh install?
ANy help would be much appreciated

P.S. I also tried changing my boot screen which worked when i restarted my computer after, but i dunno if it can affect anything

download UBCD and burn it to CD...boot it and use the appropriate HDD app to wipe it all to zeros.

Also I believe windows setup will allow you to wipe the partition prior to install, but I cant say it is as thorough.

Nope, As i said, i couldnt boot from the vista disk, im currently downloading the Vista Recovery Tool Disk to try that, im also currently posting off the the Linux Live CD on my screwed up pc. The Drives are 4 month old Seagate 250G 7200.10 SATAII's.

Something i dont think i said is i tried installing a new bootscreen.... could that have done anything?

Also, anyone know how to recover my files through Linux?
Im downloading this and about to try it:

Isnt that the same as burning a bottable disk?
Ive tried using Ubunutu, Knoppix, and Windows REcovery, Recovery gives me a BSOD,
Ubuntu says the NTFS is corrupt, and Knoppix wont boot

"Ubuntu says the NTFS is corrupt" OR the update f'k uped the boot array MBR

Ya, i tried mounting the harddrives in ubuntu to get my files, and it gave me this error:
"NTFS signature is missing.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/sda' doesn't have a valid NTFS.
Maybe you selected the wrong device? Or the whole disk instead of a
partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)? Or the other way around?"

the files arent "life or death" but they are pretty important, stuff ive been gather for over a year now... would kinda suck to get everything again. and like over 300G's of Torrents
