I have an old 80GB HDD (WD800JD-75LSA0)
I took it out of an old computer that I no longer use. Any time that I tried to use it I would get BSOD. XP pro was installed on it so I figure that there was something wrong with it and causing problems. Either that or the drive was dead. I then used Active@ KillDisk to zero it out to see if this would allow me to use it.
My problem is that Vista wont recognize that its there anymore. The bios screen upon boot lists it, and opening up Active@ KillDisk sees it also but vista doesn’t.
I was going to simply do: format drive: /q
but I cant tell it what drive to look for.
This is where I am stuck, any advice would be appreciated.
