    I have a Targa Ultra AN64 3700+. I had blue screen of death. I had to backup stuff from the drive so i disconnected it and used a USB Universal Drive to back up it to my onto my laptop.

    Now the problem i have here is when I try to installed XP or Windows 7 it does not find the hard drives. It displays

    Unkown Disk

    <There is no disk in this drive.>

    Things i have tired:
    • disable the SATA in the BIOS and still does not detect any of my hard drives.
    • re-enable it and it still can't find it.
    • When I go to Standard CMOS Features it can not detect any hard drives.
    It detects it then it doesn't detect it. It comes and goes everytime. They don''t have any jumpers on them it came like that. It should be IDE 2 Master and IDE3 Slave.

    I know some people are buying USB Floppy disk. I really don't want to buy anything else due to Christmas coming up.

    Any ideas to get my PC going?
