Hardware Issues… Error In Operator

Yea, so after 12+ hours of cursing screaming and cursing the name of Microsoft, Bill Gates, and Steve Ballmer… yea, as I was running out of the house this morning I remember that to try to get the SATA drives recognized by Spinrite I switched the SATA access mode from AHCI to IDE in the computer’s BIOS, rebooted and voila, Windows boots up just fine. Ooops.

As an extra bonus, my Drobo seems to be talking to the world again just fine. I’ll plug it directly into my Mac when I get home tonight to run a disk check on it again to be sure, but I think maybe just having it’s bits twiddled by the various disk utility software got it back up and going properly.

Sometimes as I’m finding, the problem is just me….
