    Hello I've run into a problem, my Disk0 is disappearing in windows 7 after I wake my computer from sleep mode. At first I thought the problem was caused by lilo (a linux bootloader for those that don't know). I disabled lilo by running bootsect for my Winodws 7 install disk. It turns out lilo was the cause of another problem I was having but not the cause of my Disappearing Disk 0. So I took a look at the event viewer and found this error in the system logs:

    Error 11/16/2009 4:08:10 PM Service Control Manager 7026 None
    Code:
    Log Name:      System
    Source:        Service Control Manager
    Date:          11/16/2009 3:44:13 PM
    Event ID:      7026
    Task Category: None
    Level:         Error
    Keywords:      Classic
    User:          N/A
    Computer:      B17CH
    Description:
    The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: 
    sptd
    Naturally, I reinstalled sptd and this appeared to fix the problem, however it only fixed the problem for a couple of minutes, then my disk 0 disappeared again.

    This is how my Disk Manager Looks before sleep mode (ignore the green comment I solved that problem):

    And this is what it looks like after I wake my computer from sleep mode:

    I looked in the event viewer and found these errors in the system log.

    Microsoft has some support for these errors but they are only applicable up to 2003 Server, I tried to apply them to Windows 7 but it appears that that is impossible to do. Does anyone know how I can resolve this problem

    Sorry I did not notice this post was from November 09-----------------------

    There are only 4 primary partitions or 3 primary and one extended partitions allowed per drive.........

    You are showing 6 (4 primary and 2 logical)..... Maybe getting of 2 of the primaries will help..
