Hi everyone , I am employed as a manager in a firm. I have a problem
that I had like to talk about. My system was working fine the other day,
but while copying a file by nero….the system hanged and I had to restart
it. But I got a disk boot failure error. Then , I tried to run a windows
xp installation CD, but that is also showing some error message during
installation and the installation fails.I did check the bios settings
and the disk fails to show…and had it checked on another system also…but
bios cannot detect the hard disk.I think the disk is damaged or
something like that.The disk has important data  from my company’s point
of view…..that I need to recover.
Please let me know if there are any ways to get my data back from this

Put the drive as slave in an other pc and copy the important data.

Agreed, and if the drive doesn't show up properly in the
other system, run the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostics
on it, available from their respective website if you dont'
have it.  If all else fails you will need to contact a data
recovery center, hopefully there is a backup of the data so
this isn't necessary.

Before that disconnect any cables connected to hard drive and reconnect.
If no joy procede as above.
