Windows 7: wont boot x64 ultimate

wont boot x64 ultimate

hi guys i posted in another thread regarding this but ive found more out about this problem..

basically after upgrading from vista everything worked great, until i installed the intel matrix storage manager (from here ... )

since then it wouldnt boot up, it got so far and stuck on the starting windows screen,

so i put it down because of the upgrade etc, but dont want to lose all my data so i did a fresh install of 7 on a different hd, everything worked great again until i installed this matrix software, so this is definitely the problem,

my question is..

is there anyway through a copy of xp accessing the windows 7 hard drive i could put back the files that get changed when upgrading?

the intel raid chip i have is the ICH9

finally got it sorted, i copied "iastor.sys" from an older version of intel matrix storage manager and it booted straight away, seems like my pc doesnt like the 8.9 driver!
