It was replaced with the same motherboard, but still no luck with the drive,
it will crash out at the splash screen.
I was again on te phone to novatech support and he said that i should try different ports and different sata cables, I have done this and neither worked
I managed to get hold of another computer and ran the hdd as an additional drive.
In disk management it comes up as a dynamic drive 'invalid'
how the problem drive looks using diskgenius
normal drive from secondary computer
