You guys know all those problems I have had with my Rev A? Well now it is the hard drive. I have a Maxtor 120G (ATA IDE) and it has three partitions, the middle being the place where I have things I need to recover. The primary (boot partition) has 9.1.1 and will not boot. When I go up with a 9.1 CD, it sees the drive as empty, will not mount it and will not update the drivers. The only choice allowed is to initalize (loose everything). How can I recover the data if the drive is not being recognized?
I suspect that some of my earlier grief may have been caused by this drive. As soon as I can recover the data, I will slick the drive (zero all data) and keep my 'must haves' somewhere safer than on the same physical drive as the boot partition.
Any help os much appreciated.
