Why can't I see my second hard disk?
Posted on 2014-10-29
I have a SATA 160-GB hard disk that won't boot. I'm trying to connect it as a second drive in another desktop PC, in order to read and save the data files.
When I go into BIOS, the BIOS sees the drive correctly.
But when I boot the machine, Windows Explorer doesn't see it. When I go into Computer Management --> Disk Management, this disk shows up as Offline. The error message reads "The disk i offline because it has a signature collision with another disk that is online".
What can I do to read/repair this drive? Thanks
