So I had to reformat recently, and I've been having a lot of problems with Windows detecting my drive. The bios detects it just fine, and funny enough, I used this drive to reinstall Windows.
Let me first say that before the reformat, my drive already had hacked firmware, so this may be the reason why Windows is being so damn stubborn. Earlier today, it actually detected my drive, but it didn't recognize the region free hack for some reason, so I decided to reflash it. Big mistake.
Now Windows either decides to not recognize it at all or recognizes it as a removable storage device.
What I've been thinking is that if I reflash the stock firmware somehow, Windows will detect it, and THEN I can flash hacked firmware with no problem.
Is this possible?
