    Hi All,

    I need urgent help on thi.

    I have a HP Proliant G6 Server and i have installed ESXi 4.0 Server on it which i updated to ESXi 4.1.

    Installed it on a 500GB HDD and created a Data store to install VMs on the same.

    Everything looked fine and then it started to run slow. so i thought i would move to Hyper V.

    When copying the VM HDDs i took ages and just sat down.
    so i took off the HDD and then connected it to another computer with it as a slave.

    windows 7 showed me all the partitions besides the data store of the HDD
    which can be seen in computer management but cannot be read or mounted.

    now i tried to install vmware esxi on anohter server and connect the old hdd to the new server. it shows me the HDD but when i try to add a new storage it asks to format the old HDD which i cannot as it has all my old data in it.

    how do i add this as a new storage or recover all my data.

    please help me

    thank you in advance.
