IBM Deskstar 100GB Drive issues
Posted on 2007-03-30
I have my mates PC at home, i'm in the process of re-installing windows as the current windows installation is complely shot, i've reinstalled windows on this machine and after the first phase of the install (Format, file copy process, reboot) when the windows splash screen comes up for the first time before setup continues i get a BSOD Stop error 'INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE'
I have checked the drives IDE cabling which is correct and also run chkdsk on this drive, i have run IBM's own testing tools on this drive and the drives SMART logs are good and the drive has reported back no problems, I've now installed windows on a Western Digital 20GB hard drive and all is fine,
