    if you change it through the bios, its permanent, until you flash your bios.

    if its sata there are sometimes an area to enable your sata ports for recognition through the bios. GL

    you may want to chk on the software site for the make of the HD to see if there's a software that you can run a disk check on. I know I found one for my older maxtor drive.
