Question about Seagate (ST380011A) 80 GB IDE Hard Drive
I have a 250gb SATA harddisk.which is working as a slave drive on my computer (primary is a IDE harddisk) everything was fine until today morning when i switched on the system to find that , out of the 4 partitions on the 250gb harddisk , 3 were missing.
under diskmanagement it says,
and shows G: on the right hand side as a partition with 232.88gb
but under my computer it says, G: total space 19.5GB, available 17.4GB.
Also H: I: and J: are missing!
Any help will be appreciated.
I think you just got corruption. possibly heat related. or rootkit. uhh dynamic isn't right i think its logical .. right click the drive letter lower section and convert is best bet. i also dabbed with ptedit32 from bootable cd ubcd4win.com to fix lost partitions in prior experience.. but it was 1 partition and i found lba and other settings on drive sticker.

Tips for a great answer:
you will need to set up master slave configuration you will have to change your first boot device every time you want to use the second operating system
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to hd-0,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.
Jumpers for a PC hard drive are next to the power connector. Mostly in between the power connector and the data cable connector. These are used for setting up Master/Slave settings and also to limit capacity of the HDD seen by PC BIOS on some older hard disks. Usually settings which are selected by jumper setting to various locations are printed on the hard disk information sticker.
however you could partition one hard drive with both operating systems on it this would enable you
to choose which operating system you want every time it boots up you could use partition magic 8
