Cannot access some partitions after ghosting ide to sataII ??
Posted on 2006-05-01
Hardware is an Epox 8RDA3G mainboard with AMD XP2400, 1Gb ram and running under Win98se.
I have been using a 60gig ide which has been running pretty full for a while now and I decided to update it to a 340gig sataII. (WD320gig/7200/16)
The epox does not have sata interface so I fitted an 'ide to sata' adaptor (plugged into the ide1 socket) and ghosted (ghost7.5) the ide drive to sata drive.
All seemed to go ok, however ... after booting up with the new sata drive (only hdd installed in system) I found that all seemed ok until I went to win explorer and found I have no access to the last couple of partitions.
My original drive had 7 partitions: C,D.E,F,G,H,I ..... now I get C,D and E but no F,G,H,and I. (system properties reports that these partitions are using ms-dos compatability mode file system)
A solution to getting these last partitions 'seeable' again would be most appreciated.
