We had some power flops but my Gateway system was on a APC UPS. Evenso, I powered it down and when I went to reboot, it would not. I tried to boot with Bootit to restore an image but eventhough the bootit icons came up, nothing worked when I clicked them (like Partitions)
So, I put the Gateway OS install disk in and booted from that but I received the message
Setup did not find any installed hard drives on your system.
The system was working the day before (the storms) and not now (eventhough they were on the USP).
I am reading other posts about this but so far I havent hit the nail on the head as what to do.
