Hey all hope this is an informative forum.... lets begin with the prob... for the past couple of weeks ive been with a computer then without a computer and bck and forth so on. The problem is my HD's. Basically theres been a bunch of diff things happening over the course of the past weeks that have all been temporarily fixed. just to come back again. i have 2 SATA HD's in my comp, a 200gig maxtor and a 320 gig seagate.... the maxtor has my OS on it (windows xp home edition). so the problems im experiencing r as followed: 1. BIOS doesn't show HD's .... at the moment its showing my 2nd master (the seagate) but not the 1st 2. rebooting hangs at device listing screen (symptom of boot priority error that im workin on without a prop) 3. When trying to repair and/or reinstall windows... no partitions r visible ( like the HD isnt even in the comp.... even though everything is in rite. this is a recent problem but a most annoying one so any help would be most appreciated and would keep me commming to this site happy hunting all Thread moved to the correct forum.
