Windows XP Recovery with Hiren Boot CD

ImageI have a macbook pro.  Intel based and four years old.  Within Mac OS I run Parallels 6 with Windows XP Professional.  Within that I run an accounts package on which I heavily rely.  I do have a backup solution but the other day got BSOD on boot.  Nothing worked.  No recovery console.  Nothing.  Lots of googling.  All advice said forget it corrupt drive etc etc.

Then I stumbled across Hiren Boot CD and within 10 mins has the mini xp on it running and was able to run chkdsk and voila am fully up and running.
