hard drive in bios but not system recognized
Posted on 2007-07-22
Customer brought a Maxtor IDE hard drive believed to be bad. I have a test machine which has a working diskk0 with XP and I use this machine to extract data from bad drives. Device manager and disk management do not see the disk. The bois sees the drive and I have tried switching from IDE2 slave and IDE 2 master with and without other drives on the channel.. The bois always sees the drive but the system does not. Booted under knoppix Linux system but when I try to mount the disk it fails. Error message 'could not determine the file system type and none was selected. Any ideas?
