Hey guys, my mate brought his PC over last week stating that on boot-up it hung on 'detecting primary slave drive'... So without touching anything I turned it on and it worked! However the same problem has occured since then, and I suggested he brought it back to me... Well he left it down last night, and this morning and turned it on, only to see 'detecting primary slave drive'; I hit reset and the computer booted into windows 98 (safe mode)... I ran scandisk on the C: drive (no other partitions on the 40GB Fujitus drive) and around 1/3 through the system restarted, only to again hang on 'detecting primary slave drive'... So I changed the cables, tried it in two different PC's, set it as master/slave/cable select etc; and the same problem each time. On one occasion it said no boot sector found on primary disk I am pretty sure there is no power getting to the hardisk, has it died? He is extremely worried as he has the disk full of his own DJ music, any ideas or is it borked? Or has the boot sector gone? I did a boot from win98 floppy, and then ran a Fujitsu diagnostic program, only for it to state 'could not find a primary slave disk' HELP!!!!
