I am assuming (because you did not tell me) that you are running a version of Windows. You need to open help and support and search under drive management. The drive is showing as raw because you have not yet created a basic volume or any partition structure.
Hi,Most times this occurs when the Operating system is corrupt or if the Hard Disk is faulty,try starting in safe mode by pressing F8 when you power up the system and select "load last know Good configuration that Worked".if you still encounter these problem slave the hard disk to another system using a converter backup your files and format,reinstall the Operating system,or you purchase another Disk Drive.
This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).
You should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS . You can download it from http://www.geekswhoknow.com/files/ntfsinst.exe After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired. Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reinstall Windows and select the full format during the install
> Primary IDE Master: NONE
> Primary IDE Slave: SP0822N
Good. Your motherboard has detected ONE disk-drive.
Do you have just one connected disk-drive on your PRIMARY channel, or do you have two connected disk-drives (via the 2 connectors on the one ribbon-cable on the PRIMARY channel) ?
If you have two drives connected via one ribbon-cable, you MUST set the 'master/slave/cable-select' jumpers on BOTH disk-drives, to identify which of the two will be the 'master' and which will be the 'slave'.
Also, check that the 'second' disk-drive is getting electrical power.
> NTLDR MISSING
Like I said, you deleted 99% of the files, including the 'NTLDR' file.
Your computer is trying to "boot" from the 1% of the files that still exist on the disk-drive, but cannot find the now-deleted file.
Perfectly normal, given that you have formatted the disk.
This drive is an IDE drive. The jumpers can be set on it to make it a slave.
Once set as a slave, you can identify the drive letter given to this drive and format it either at a command prompt: C:> format [drive:] /s (to make it bootable) or no /s to just format it.- OR within Windows: right click on the drive letter and select format.
Your operating system or Master Boot Record is corrupt. Which version of windows are you using?
It may be possible to repair the problem with your windows disk. Boot from the Windows disk but make sure you read the instructions for windows repair carefully because some options will format your hard drive.
To rescue the data here are some things I do:
Make a boot disk with USB support and transfer the contents of your drive ton an external harddrive. Or, you could place your hard drive in another computer as a slave drive and retrieve your files that way.
You can put in your Windows disk and boot PC from the disk drive and then select to repair, this will not format your PC and will replace your hal.dll file. fixing windows and keeping your personal files. Usually this works, but if it can't fix the problem it will tell you then give you a format option, at that point turn off the PC, take out the hard dive, hook it up to another pc as a slave or external drive to back up your files, then put the thing back in your pc and format. but try to use the repair option of your windows disk. there is hardly ever an actual reason for people to format
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
Attempting to upgrade from a Windows computer that is using FAT32.
New hard disk drive being added.
Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
Seriously corrupted version of Windows.
Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable
Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.
Just remove the jumper of your hard disk to set it it to slave as you will see on the instruction pasted on your disk. If your disk is formatted NTFS, win98 will not be able to read your files use a machine with winxp operating system.
