Long story short!
I installed vista because i was curious... most people said is was **** and some said it was the greatest thing.

So Ive installed it and yes i didn't like it, so back to xp we went.

I got into my fresh installation of XP and now Im missing a hard drive.

But if i go into disk management it says that the hard drive is there and it thinks that 128gig is a healthy partition and the other 337gig is unallocated

but last time i could access the hard drive it was 337gigs of used space and 128gig free,
its like vista had changed the format and xp cant read it anymore.

any thoughts?

Ive tried swapping the sata ports over
i don't want to format it as i think all my info is still on there and i relay want to recover it.
I have not tried it in a different computer as my rig is the only one with a sata port.

any help would me much appreciated, if i need to say any more info about the computer fire away.

cheers
marc
