w2000 48bit LBA - 200g slave HD recovery steps after HD controller re-install
Posted on 2005-04-30
Hi all - W2000 server (running on dell opti110) with 110g primary HD and 200g secondary HD - running and stable for few years. Inadvertantly re-installed IDE controller, which knocked out LBA etnries in registry, and now primary HD is fine but 200g slave shows as 128g.
Is there ANYthing we can do to try to save the 200g?? I seem to remember that if we just re-enable 48bit in registry, it corrupts existing data on the 200g - any ideas on best order of steps to take to salvage existing data on the 200g??
