    Im trying to do some data recovery on a server that wont boot into windows right now. I basically want to get the data on the other server so it can work.

    I tired a BART PE disk but the access to the folder with the data was denied. So now i tried my linux rescue cd. unfortunately none of the scsi drives are not showing in /dev. I figure its a driver issue, but not sure how i can load these.

    i believe that if you want to get your scsi drives working you need to use the "alternate" disc.

    Which distro?
    Loaded up the partition manager and checked if it's there?
    Try puppy linux.

    used a gentoo based cd. they were just under an odd name in the dev folder as my post above says.

    It won't harm you in trying puppy in this one case, anyway, checked google, couldn't find anything. How old is the rescue CD?

    I have no other ideas to give except to to try puppy or Ubuntu Live cd's. Both of them will let you copy paste the data into other drives/partitions.
