    Hi ! I installed Vista Ultimate on a new machine on wednesday. It was working fine. I converted the PATA Hard Disk of my old system to an external one. Windows Xp was installed in it. So i removed the jumper so as to make it a slave. Yesterday morning, i connected that external HDD via USB. It worked well.

    But suddenly, the system hanged and i was forced to reboot. I did so and removed that external HDD. But unfortunately, it couldn't reboot and said

    Find--set-root/bootmgr

    Warning : Unrecognized partition table for drive 80. Please rebuild it using a Microsoft - comptible FDISK tool(err=22). Current=266305/246/63

    i dunno what command to give.

    So, i formatted the drive and re-installed Vista on C Drive. The installation proceeded well and completed without any glitch. Again while re-booting, the problem persisted. Even i tried installing Xp. No fruit. What shall i do now?

    And i forgot to mention. I partitioned the HDD into 6 Drives (4 while initially installing Vista & later cut the 4th into 3 drives after installation ) .. But when i tried re-installing Vista, only the first 2 of the 6 drives were shown. . Does it mean that i will lose the other drives?
