Well, I have a Samsung 40 GB PATA HDD( I know its long time I upgraded . but i terribly need to recover this HDD). I think i disconnected this HDD before I turned off the power supply. Ever since I get an error during post :
Detecting Primary master ...SP0411N
Detecting primary slave...
and then :
Primary Master Disk failed.
I think it should be a ESD problem since i had not disconnected the power supply before removing this drive. But then, when I boot using a Ubuntu live CD, I can see that all files are intact. I tried this drive on another comp and the result was same. I ran Sea Tools for dos on this drive and the drive passed both the short test and the long test.
What do you suggest I do ?
In case I manage to create a image of this disk and load the image on to another HDD, do you think i will be able to boot into it ?
