Sorry for the OT post, but this is about the only place I know where people may have an answer to my problem. See, I have a hard drive that refuses to be detected by the BIOS. It was working fine and then one day: power down - power up - *poof* the harddrive is gone from the BIOS POST.
I've tried exchanging IDE cables, putting it on a different controller, even a different PC, but it will not be detected. I can hear it spin up all right, so I know it's not its power unit. The disk had shown no signs of being about to bail (even though it is a couple of years old). There's nothing vital stored on it, although I would like to salvage what I can.
Has anyone got any clue as to what may have happened, and how one can go about accessing the drive?
Thanks in advance! -Henrik W Lund _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
