Click on the Strat button type in cmd > right click on that .exe at the top > run as admin> it will open with a black window let it settle for a few seconds then type DISKPART
then type LIST DISK hit enter and it should show you a list of the drives you have in the machine.
How much data do you have on the slave drive? and is it important?
hi ICit2lol ^^ thank you for your reply.
if you mean in the Manage at the disk listing, yes i looked but it's not there..
before going to bed last night(more like at 5am) after i made this post) i switched their cables and made my slave ,master ,at the second boot he appeared in bios and opened my windows 7(i was happy to tears ) all 5 partitions were there ..
i got a window that told me that the 2 hard drives were successful installed and asked a reboot T.T...did that and again the ST3250319AS ATA wasn't there (bios,manager )
this morning tried again to reboot it till it showed but tho in bios was, when started windows 7 on maxtor,the partitions didn't showed .same in manager ..
also i didn't say but we kind of know when this will happen .. every time ,i will get the "a hard drive is preventing windows from starting " then i get the repair window ( and windows somehow kicks ST3250319AS ATA out)
and yes the files are important (not pictures or anything stupid , documents that i didn't save anywhere else T.T.
P.S aa i did that DISKPART but didn't managed to get anything , maybe i didn't added correct the words
