    CAn I do it without losing the data on my drive? It's all my Uni work.

    Will reinstalling it after a bios update make it actually boot from my hard disk again because at the moment it can't find it.

    I started this thread as no-one (apart from 1 guy) seems to want to answer my other one which has basically turned into this question now anyway.

    Thanks in advance.

    Should be fine. If your drive is in a RAID setup then youll need to remake your array but otherwise windows should just pick up the drivers, reboot and itll see the drive.

    What gets me is why you dont keep things BACKED UP?

    Um, how can you manage not to boot from a Sata drive? it either boots or it doesn't, nothing to do with drivers.

    Either way, its not very clear (to me) what your trying to do, but back it up just incase ;).
