      I've had OK luck on some of these troublesome ones by pulling the drive and connecting it using one of those really cheap USB/IDE adapter cables. Start a known good computer, make sure AUTO RUN is not on, then plug the drive/adapter into the known good machine. Scan from there.

      But it won't in Safe Mode, unless the kernel has been patched, in which
      case you're screwed anyway.
