I went ahead recently and bought a 2060-701474-002 REV A pcb board replacement.
Went ahead and installed the new pcb board and yes indeed my hard drive is obviously out of warranty.
Right now its connected to my usb 2.0 enclosure that was in the WD blue ring enclosure, it was originally hooked up to my network but since i took everything out of it i cannot find the controller board now.
I rebooted with the new pcb board installed when my hard drive was in my usb 2.0 enclosure that i bought from newegg, back when i had the old pcb installed it was seen in BIOs and windows but i can never access it, i tried linux reader, it showed but no access.
It now cannot be seen at all in BIOs or device manager, if i switch the bios settings to IDE it will BSOD during after POST
I tried everything on this link multiple times and still no luck. Three Ways To Access Linux Partitions (ext2/ext3) From Windows On Dual-Boot Systems | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
I dont know what im missing, can someone help me?
I want to do this without losing anything.
Drive was accessed from XP and then i had a vista machine while back, no problems that i knew about, until i started dealing with windows 7 it sometimes disappear and then reappear, sometimes it takes a bit for the files to load. and then one day it just wont show the network drive.
