Going back to this question
do you see the OS drive in the boot options?
When you boot into your BIOS or boot options, do you see the driver that contains your OS?

Hi axe0,

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, after I finished work yesterday and got home ( around 6:30 ) I had to leave the house again.

So just got to run - chkdsk via command prompt, I checked for errors on all three HDDs.
The results, all say ' no problems found '

I have not run HD tune yet, not sure how to access them?

I have noticed, if I boot from Kaspersky rescue disc, only drives ' c ' & ' d ' are recognised, but when I run command prompt, all three HDDs where there.

No worries about HDTune, I forgot about the boot problem when I posted it, you don't have to run HDTune.
