    HDD Under Device Manager but not Disk Management

    Ha! My friend, you are a good luck charm. As I wrote up this problem I was running a deep scan using testdisk. When it finished scanning the partition, I rewrote it back to the disk and now it's like it never left. It's a beautiful thing, I tell ya. 6 years of backed up Television Shows...

    HDD Under Device Manager but not Disk Management

    Hey guys, back again. The problem is pretty straightforward, right from the title. I have a 750G HD that shows up under the Device Manager, but not under Disk Management. It's in the Bios. But not in the Win7 OS. Honestly, I'm a little confused. What's worse, I uninstall it from the...

The solution would be a repair installation, or (if you got...

    No boot after Hardware Upgrade

    To start, I'd love to post more detailed system specs, but I cant even get into the OS. I had a Dell Workstation 380 with 7, sporting an extra (NOT the one with the OS) 750GB HD that failed. I deemed the case unworthy and built what is essentially a new rig. Mobo: Gigabyte EP43 UD3L with the...
