I am working on a clients HDD (Vista Home Premium) and running HDD Regenerator.
I have backed up all his data and run HDD regen and have gotten to the point where regen tell me to restart the computer and also "Your hard drive is not fixed yet...If your Sata controller works in AHCI mode, change it to compatible IDE mode".
Now the purpose of this question is not to ask whether I should replace the hdd or not but to get more familiar with hdd Regen. I have goggled and searched and cannot find user notes, etc. for this program.
1) What step do I next take after this message comes up in hhd regen? In the bios how do I
change to IDE mode? If his bios does not support the change to IDE will the hdd not be fixed?
What does changing to IDE mode do?
