Windows 7: System Reserved created on a secondary drive

It's showing up in the BIOS, but it's not showing in the Disk Management at all. I also noticed that Windows is slower on startup when it's connected than when it's not connected.

Other than that I can't tell if it's completely failed or even slightly working.

Do you have a spare different SATA data cable you can test with it ?

I have a Corsair 850D case and I moved it to a different drive bay and it still wasn't recognized by W7, only the BIOS is recognizing it via a different SATA port. In this case it was moved from SATA2 to SATA4 on the MoBo via the Corsair's hot swap bays.

Some members have created a bootable Linux disc and then managed to salvage files off of a corrupted / dying HD, since it does show in the Bios.

I'll do some research. Thanks for the info, Doc. Much appreciated.
