I have two hard drives. I tried installing Windows Vista Business on
the first one to use in a dual-boot configuration with Windows XP
which was on the second hard drive. Well, the Vista installation
worked fine, but when I went to boot into XP, I found Vista's boot
loader hadn't recognized Windows XP. Clearly frustrated, I tried
several different things until I finally decided to format the first
hard drive. It was horrible I lost my entire data from the Hard drive.
Vista made my data vanish. I hate it. I tried using repair tool and
many recovery software, but it did not work. Please help me out.

I know Vista doesnít install itself easily. Something must have
happened, thatís for sure. What software you have used to recover your
data? One of the data recovery software I know is Salvage Data
recovery Software for windows. My friend used the software and got his
data back. Few days back I tried to recover the data of my office
system, which I lost accidentally while formatting and it worked well.
Try with their software. I think their site name is salvage data.
All the best.
