I have installed XP SP3 on my SATA HDD-320 Seagate Baracuda- and have downloaded a lot of stuff- movies- games etc. . all was fine
and i was able to use all the functions properly. then i thought of updating the system online from Microsoft updates
now the HDD is not getting recognised- XP is not booting - SATA HDD is not recognised even in the bios.
i have 2 SATA HDDs, 80 GB and 320 GB wanted to use both together but am in trouble now. as primary and secondary slave dont work. am presently booting frmo 80 GB SATA but th3 320 is not recognised in system nor in bios
my Motherboard- Intel Pentium 845GNTL- supports 4 SATA connections
-1 GB RAM DIMM2- 512 2 peices
i am giving all info which may be essential for diagnosing- hope it helps.
looking forward to reply soon.
