Reinstalled Windows 2000 Pro last night. Now I have missing drives. We installed the sata drivers at set up, so I don't think that's the problem.
The system seem to see them somewhere because of the way my drive lettering is going:
C: Partition of hard drive 1 (Maxtor 250 gig) - Has the operating system on it and is working.
D: Partition of hard drive 1 - Missing
E: Partition of hard drive 1 - Missing
F: 250 gig Western Digital, no partitions - Missing
G and H are opticle drives
When I turn on the external hard drive, it labels itself J as it did when all the drives were working.
I read somewhere, during our extensive search for the answer, that we need to go into Bios (which, by the way, doesn't recognize the drives) and set it to read Sata drives. How do I do this? I know that I need to hit delete at start up to get there, and I can see Primary and Secondary slave on the first page. When I click on secondary, all it talks about is autodetecting IDE drives.
Thanks in advance for any help.
