My system config is as follows:
- WinXP Pro SP3
- ASUS P5B-VM motherboard
- 2 Seagate SATAII HDD
- 1 80GB Seagate IDE HDD
- 1 LiteOn DVD RW IDE
Yesterday I got a BSOD and as I rebooted I found that both my IDE devices are missing and can not be recognized by XP. While booting I found that both the IDE devices are properly listed but as soon as WinXP starts, both these drives are not recognized.
I checked Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Log> System, I found that XP listed a error related with JMicron driver. After downloading and reinstalling JMicron driver (which I hope was right version), the DVD RW drive is now listed but my IDE drive is still missing which contains very important data and my Linux
As both the devices are properly listed during pre-OS boot, that I think means that the issue is related to OS, and it is not a driver issue. In BIOS I checked that JMicron controller is set to BASIC (there are 2 other modes, but I have no idea what do those two mean)!
Could someone please help me out to resolve this issue? Its really urgent for me to resolve.
