Re: hard drive data retrieval
Either connect the disk directly to your new motherboard - jumper it
correctly if it is an IDE disk - or buy a USB external disk case and fit
it in that. Again, jumper it as master if it is an IDE disk.
The data will be visible when you have assigned a drive letter to the
disk in Disk Management, if this does not happen automatically.
Transfer procedures will depend on which programs you were using before
and are using now.
This assumes the crash was not because the disk itself failed. If the
disk failed, you may need to send it to a recovery spe******t.
