I just got a brand spanking new computer, and like so many others was forced to give Vista a chance. So far its not been too bad. Except of course for the problems ;o)
Here's one of them...
The computer came with 1 Serial 200 Gig HD (ST320082) and 1 serial DVD/RW (DH16A1L). There is a single Parallel ATA connector which supposedly supports 2 devices.
MOTHERBOARD = M2N68-LA
CHIPSET = NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
I wanted to add my old XP computer's DVD/RW and 250 gig HD (with data) to the Vista box.
So I connected the HD (WD2500JB), and the bios recognized it, Vista's Device manager identified it correctly, but Vista's Disk Management did not. It wasn't simply disactivated, it was totally absent.
The computer came with diagnostic tools, which detected the HD and I ran a full battery of diagnostics and all passed.
I'd like to know what Vista Disk Management's problem is and if there's a way to fix it.
Thanks in advance!
