Last night, I accidentally deleted one of my linux partitions in the MMC, and so I decided that I may as well delete the other two. So i did. Over night, there was a powercut, and when I woke, my pc was off. On reboot, I was greeted with Searching for boot record on IDE0 (as it does) Li 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1............................................. and so filled half of a screen and hung. Naturally, my boot drive (installation) being IDE0, and my data drive being IDE1, I booted the recovery console from the CD and fixed my MBR (fixmbr) The computer booted as expected, and windows started. no obvious problems. Now, I have a 700MB video file on my C: drive, and windows tells me I'm running out of space. I went to move it to the other disk, but on opening my computer, lo and behold, the only partition is c: The disk management snap-in in the MMC is only showing IDE0. Where's my other disk? lol Bios seems to pick up the disk, but windows doesn't. Rebooting hasn't solved it. I'll get bios to auto detect my disks again, but in the mean time, does anybody know why this happens and what to do about it?
