Howdy, a friend of mine just brought me her laptop, the graphics controller is dead, and she desperately needs the data off of the hard drive. I do not have an external enclosure for the drive, nor is it the right style to fit in my Macbook. So, the drive needs to stay in her laptop, and I need to be able to either boot it up in some kind of Target Disk mode, or to automatically copy its contents to an external drive. (Which I do have.) Is there any way to either: 1) Boot a PC into FW/Eth. Disk mode. (Using a Linux bootable CD?) 2) Figure out by default what the path to the internal laptop and external drives are "by default," and do a "dd" or some other command to copy the contents of her drive to the external? (All without being able to see anything on the screen.) And no, it does not work when plugged into an external display either, the problem seems to be on the controller or the logic board. Thanks guys!
