I can bear losing most of my data, except from one file and that oem thing.
I managed to run windows installer. Windows found out all partition so i decided to reinstall it. It didn't worked as "installer does not have access to files" or simillar, I've opened installer again and this time it said that hard drive is about to fail. Great...
Now is there any possibility to recover that file from hd?
I dont know how but live cd managed to find hard drive, access it and say that disk is imminent to fail. I've managed to restore needed data from it. For me it feels pretty strange cause the more I operate on hd the more it seems to work(as earlier it did not even see filesystem, now it diagnoses it properly). I don't know if its just using its last resources before death or something strange happens.
If your system hard locks, that is, locks up to the point that nothing seems to be able to get you out of it, you really should not just turn the power off. There is a little "backdoor" safe reboot/shutdown built into Linux, and this is how it works.
Hold both the ALT and SYSRQ (Print Screen) keys.
While holding those keys, type the following keys (with a few seconds pause between each keystroke).
For a safe reboot (spaces & CAPS are for clarity only):
R E I S U B
For a safe power off:
R E I S U O
Usually it will look like nothing is happening until the last key (U or O), and then your system will reboot or turn off. It's almost impossible to lock a Linux system to the point that this will not work (although I've managed it once or twice in my many, many years with Linux). So what does this magical key sequence do?
R = unraw (take control of keyboard back from X),
E = terminate (send SIGTERM to all processes, allowing them to terminate gracefully),
I = kill (send SIGKILL to all processes, forcing them to terminate immediately),
S = sync (flush data to disk),
U = unmount (remount all filesystems read-only),
B = reboot (or O = turn off)
So how do you remember this magic trick?
Use the acronym: Reboot Even If System Utterly Broken
And remember to substitute "O" for "B" to turn the system off.
EDIT: I should mention that this is a "last resort" sort of thing. You should always shut down or restart the normal way if possible (although I know you all are going to try it at least once). Also, on some notebooks and netbooks the SysRq key is access by using the Fn (Function) key. In that case you would hold Alt, then hold Fn, then hold SysRq, and then you can release Fn and continue with reisub. And another way to remember reisub is to use the word "busier" backwards.
