ON HP Media Center Computer
2 gigs of ram
SATA Hard Drive
Last night I clicked on a page on a website.
A bunch of screens popped up. I closed all.
Usually I keep my computer running all night, last night I turned it off... big mistake.
This am, rebooted... OS not found.
I have another drive running Vista, that is what I am on now.
The drive effected is partitioned, by HP, and when I look at the drive using VISTA I can see the secondary partition, but not the primary.
If I boot to the Media Center Drive, it clicks, click, click, click... and says, NO OPERATING SYSTEM FOUND.
I downloaded Puppy, and am going to see if I can see the drive using Puppy.
If I boot to the XP install cd, it starts to run setup... then says... no drive found.
I am a computer technician. For years now...
Usually when a drive is clicking, it it toast.
However,,, this is different.
It is partitioned, and using vista as primary drive... I can see the secondary drive partition on the XP drive. But Not the Primary. NO CLICKING, NONE.
I hope I have not been too wordy.
Since original post, I have gotten PUPPY, and I am on puppy now. It does not see either partition on the Media Center Drive.
